KoMA (KOncerti Mladih Autora / Young Authors’ Concerts)
is a project initiated in 2004 and developed by group of undergraduate students of composition of Faculty of Music, Belgrade, representing an attempt to promote new music of the youngest generation of composers. The esthetic position of the Festival - combining inherited classical tradition with some popular music genres, new technologies and performative practices, serves both as a response to leading trends in European new music scene and as a way to attract younger audiences to concert venues.
After its initial success, KoMA became an annual event held in December. The Festival is supported by FoM Belgrade, Republic of Serbia Ministry of Culture, City of Belgrade Secretariat for Culture and SOKOJ.
Founders and organisers of first editions of KoMA were two young composers, Ana Gnjatović and Milica Djordjević, at the time undergraduate students of FoM Belgrade. In 2007, Milica Djordjević continues her studies outside of Serbia, and Ana Gnjatović remains the in the organisation team of KoMA Festival, with a lot of help from her friends, colleagues, professors and FoM staff.
