Father Zvonko Martić dedicates his life to celebrating and preserving traditional Croatian music and clothing, bringing valuable pieces of lace or cataloguing another traditional Croatian, Serbian or Bosniak garment in the Monastery’s museum of folk costumes and artifacts. He organizes concerts, exhibitions, and professional gatherings at Saint Elijah Monastery at Busko Lake, BiH. In 2016, 35 members of the Tacoma Symphony Choir performed at his Monastery, reveling in the presence of this remarkable man. His work has been highlighted in the film, The Flying Friar, which premiered at the Margaret Mead Film Festival in New York in October 2018.
