Koufonisia Classical Music Festival
20 & 31 July | 9, 20 & 29 August 2017

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 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. 

This year's 3rd edition of the festival will present five concerts with artists from Greece and abroad
