The Artistic Director of the Festival is Predrag Gosta, internationally renowned conductor, keyboard-player and early music scholar. Maestro Gosta has been the most crucial and influential person in developing the Festival from a small chamber event to its current renomé - in the recent years, the Festival has grown to a three-week event, with over 15 concerts in its main series, fringe concerts, as well as number of masterclasses and workshops in historical performance practice. A regular partner of the Festival is the New Belgrade Opera that has presented several baroque opera performances in conjunction with the Festival. Masterclasses and workshops have been organized in partnership with the Belgrade Baroque Academy, which has been led by Predrag Gosta and where many distinguished artists have taught (Marijana Mijanovic, Evelyn Tubb, Ilia Korol, Jeremy West, etc.)
