It took place on March 25 the “Portuguese Music Night” in the Croatian National Theater in Varaždin. In a joint performance by two Portuguese musicians, the cellist Isabel Vaz and the pianist Vasco Dantas, successfully presented musical compositions of Fernando Lopes Graça, David de Souza, and Luís de Freitas Branco. This was an event promoted by local authorities and cultural entities of both countries and it helped to promote Portuguese culture in Croatia, notably in a city known by its historical and cultural aspects.

In an initiative organized by the Zagreb Soloists, a joint concert by the cellist Isabel Vaz and the Croatian group was held in the historic Dverce Palace in Zagreb, on the evening of March 24. She played a work of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, to an audience that included Croatian authorities and members of Diplomatic Corps, namely the Ambassadors of Brazil, Denmark, Japan and, of course, Portugal.
