Gümüşlük International Classical Music Festival



Turkey - Gümüşlük


From: 2015.07.05 To: 2015.09.07



Official website:



Every year in an intimate setting on the shores of the Aegean Sea, the Gümüşlük International Classical Music Festival and Eklisia Summer School take place. Gümüşlük is a quiet fishermen’s village in the north-west of Turkey, that has managed to avoid the increasing waves of tourists taking over the Turkish shores every year. However, from 2004 on, it has been opening its arms and welcoming world renowned classical music performers and teachers. The festival includes flute, violin, cello, piano, and harp recitals, held in the local 250-year-old church, but also in less formal venues such as cafés, restaurants, and hotels. The distinctive atmosphere of the event is created by the mixture of music students, teachers, and performers that transform the area into a classical music village for almost two months a year. The intensity is kept at a minimum, thus assuring a serene and mellow experience for both visitors and performers.
