Samos Young Artists Festival: The classical music festival returns to Pythagorion of Samos

After the forced cessation imposed by the pandemic, the Festival of Young Artists returns to the Greek region, both for the inhabitants of the island and for its visitors.

This summer, for the 11th time, young Greek and foreign up-and-coming musicians and renowned artists will meet to exchange experiences and thoughts on music and share the stage of the ancient Pythagorion Theater in Samos. The Samos Young Artists Festival has been taking place since 2010 at this location of natural beauty and history, overlooking the sea and the coasts of neighboring Turkey. This year’s program extends from pre-classical and baroque music to modern creations and lasts from the 7th to the 13th of August. The festival continues under the artistic direction of Masha Ilyashov and Alexis Karaiskakis – Nastos, seeking to remain a stage of musical reflection and activity.

After the forced cessation imposed by the pandemic, the Festival of Young Artists returns to the Greek region, both for the inhabitants of the island and for its visitors. It is one of the oldest music festivals in the North Aegean that has been held continuously since 2010 while in 2018 it was awarded by the jury of the Association of Music and Theater Critics as the “Best Regional Music Festival in Greece”. To date, more than 150 internationally renowned musicians have coexisted, thus consolidating Samos and the festival as a musical destination. The ticket price is kept low, 5 Euros per concert, in order to give the widest possible audience participation in the events.

The Schwarz Foundation strives to support culture in practice and in this health situation where society and especially artists are affected by the pandemic. The support of the artistic creation, the music and cultural exchange, the modern music-productioń and the interpretation of classical works are the goal of the Foundation and contribute to the development of the island of Samos.
