European Music Festival

not awarded

The European Music Festival was founded in 2001 in order to present to Sofia’s concertgoers leading Bulgarian and international classical musicians. The programme includes a variety of genres, and by combining different approaches to classical music, it expands audiences’ knowledge and experience. Over the years such world renowned artists and ensembles as Joshua Bell, Nigel Kennedy, Pinchas Zukerman, The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, I Solisti Veneti and the Moscow City Symphony have performed, as well as Bulgaria’s most talented musicians.
