13th International Pharos Chamber Music Festival

Cyprus : 13th International Pharos Chamber Music Festival

The International Pharos Chamber Music Festival is being organized again this year, despite the recent shortcomings in Cyprus. The Festival has established itself as the most important annual classical music event on the island, and has gained international reputation for its quality concerts and magnificent settings. Guided by a visionary spirit and dedicated to artistic excellence and innovation, the Festival attracts over 2.000 visitors every year. It also maintains a strong tradition of community service, with educational concerts organized for students of public schools and a number of master-classes for young instrumentalists.

This year’s Festival would not have been made possible if it were not for the kindness of the participating artists, who expressed their wish to show solidarity with the people of Cyprus by performing for a very small symbolic fee, in order to enable the Foundation to reduce the price of the tickets even more. At a time when our country faces enormous economic, political and societal challenges, the necessity of serious cultural events is often neglected, yet it is precisely during these difficult times that we need the inspiration and beauty that only the arts and music can provide.
