Novi Sad was ahead of its time during the first half of 19th century when it comes to events of public life including the musical ones according to the historian Živko Marković . The first Music school (1838) and the First Novi Sad singing society (1860) were founded by the pedagogue, composer and quire leader Aleksandar Morfidis-Nisis. The modern music life of the city is founded on this tradition and is nowadays embodied in music schools, the Department of music arts of Academy of Arts Novi Sad, Opera of the Serbian national theatre, Grand symphony orchestra and many others. I would hereby like to use this opportunity and mention the Novi Sad brass orchestra as a remainder of successful cooperation that we established at the time when we were called the Tourist info centre of Novi Sad for the purpose of promoting Novi Sad music culture.
