Sacrum Profanum combines the instrumental and vocal-instrumental masterpieces of classical music with other trends like jazz. The rich and plural sounds of the twentieth-century music are the focus of the festival. Every year the program focuses on the works of composers from another country.
It is a so-called musical journey, as the music halls are usually modified for the certain topic. The main purpose of the festival is to attract the attention of a wide range of people to the beauty and power of modern classical music.
