Koufonissia Classical Music Festival

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.

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 Koufonissia 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.

This year’s 2nd edition of the festival will present four concerts with artists from Greece and abroad.
