In 1998, Isidor Bajić Music School added yet another crowning achievement to its laurels by publishing its first CD – the concert peformance of Carl Orff’s Cantata Carmina Burana, performed by the High School Symphony Orchestra, the High School Mixed Choir, and the Elementary Music School Choir. In regard to this recording, Principal Radmila Rakin Martinović commented „….we met our ultimate goal: providing our students with an opportunity to go above and beyond the learning that marks each day of their school curriculum by utilizing these lessons in a new format, while introducing them to various aspects of professional work that await them in the future“. Thanks in large part to the attitude of their Principal, Ms. Radmila Rakin Martinović, the practice of creating similar opportunities for all generations of students continues today in various manifestations.

„The overall success of such an endevour is indeed pleasing. The students proved they were willing and able to tackle a significant and complex task – giving shape to Carl Orff’s rhythmically and melodically complex piece of music“
„From the very first measure of Fortuna, there was nearly no time for which to draw breath during this musical festivity.“
