MUSIC FESTIVAL

14 & 22 MAY / THE SHOE FACTORY, NICOSIA
1 – 4 JUNE / ROYAL MANOR HOUSE, KOUKLIA

The cultural spring season in Cyprus could not reach its pinnacle without the International Pharos Chamber Music Festival. Recognised as one of Europe's preeminent music festivals and acknowledged all over the world as Cyprus’ most important annual classical music event, the Pharos Festival has steadily and solidly gained an unequalled reputation for the quality of its concerts as well as its enchanting atmosphere and settings. With an important history of 19 years, the International Pharos Chamber Music Festival has evidently and admirably placed Cyprus, especially the area of Pafos, on the international cultural map: It was the first festival of classical chamber music to have been established in Cyprus, it has so far organised over 150 unique concerts with a vast number of world renowned soloists, chamber ensembles and orchestras, and it has created an unprecedented relationship with thousands of audience from all over the globe, who visit the island especially to be part of this exceptionally uplifting music experience. read more...
