Companions in life and in music, two established Greek soloists and pedagogues, pianist Natalia Michailidou and oboist Vaggelis Christopoulos, have devised a "homemade" festival in their atmospheric residence in Koufonissia. Their son. pianist and conductor Kornilios Michaelidis is the artistic director.
Koufonisia is a small group of two islets in the Cyclades. At a short distance, the deserted Keros island has been designated as an archaeological site under protection, as major Cycladic Art finds have been unearthed there.
The Koufonisia Classical Music Festival adds an extra touch of class to holidays by sheltered golden sand beaches and small natural pools of turquoise waters where one can enjoy seafood fresh from the sea.
Dates:18 & 25 July | 1, 10, 18 & 28 August 2018
Artistic Director:Kornilios Michailidis
Venue:Michailidou Residence in Koufonissia islands
