Samos Young Artists Festival

The Samos Young Artists Festival 2011 will take place in the Ancient Theatre of Pythagorion from August 9th to August 14th.
The concerts will start daily at 8 pm. Tickets are available at the box office for 5 Euros (1000 seats available).

As stated furthermore on the website of the festival:

It offers highly gifted young musicians an opportunity to perform. The annual festival week takes place on the Greek island of Samos as part of the Ireon Music Festival in August.
The picturesque Greek island of Samos, with its beauty, its geographic location between Orient and Occident and its changeful history, creates the perfect backdrop for the Samos Young Artists Festival.

It is the intention of the Festival's initiators to bring young artists and an interested concert audience to the island, and for this special place to become the focal point of interest each year.

The musicians, who are chosen in cooperation with various notable international institutions and festivals, demonstrate their talent in the ancient theater of the picturesque port city Pythagorion. For five nights they play a distinguished chamber music program, which they choose themselves.

The festival was founded on the private initiative of a German-Greek family in 2010. The concerts are financed exclusively through private contributions and are actively supported by local organizations and institutions, especially by the cultural association and the mayor of Pythagorion.
