The 29th Annual Paxos Music Festival will take centre stage on this beautiful Greek island in the Ionian sea between 22 August and 3 September 2015.

The Festival provides the opportunity for some of the most engaging and talented young players emerging in the UK to develop their skills and repertoire in conjunction with Greek and other international musicians, on an island renowned for its clear waters, green olive groves and friendly coastal villages.

We are planning for the 2015 festival to begin by highlighting the historic relationship of the music of the Ionian Islands with that of Italy, from the Baroque to the present day.

The closing events feature the award winning Benyounes Quartet and pianist Jeremy Young in a series of concerts featuring some of the major chamber works.

In parallel, Dimitra Trypani is following the huge success of last year’s workshops for both children and adults from Paxos, with another of her own compositions based on the local sagas of the 17th and 18th centuries for Paxiots to perform in concert.

We hope you will be there to support these stimulating events on a beautiful island, where strains of music in open rehearsals throughout the day culminate in joyous concerts at night.
