The concert venues

Music & Heritage
All the concerts during the Colmar International Festival are given in historical buildings where the enchantment of the location reinforces listening intensity. With modest seating capacities these auditoriums allow the public to fully experience this rather exceptional ambiance, full of warmth and authenticity, and be as close to the musicians as possible. For almost two weeks, the heart of Colmar beats to the rhythm of festival events. As you walk around, if you happen to cross paths with renowned soloists and orchestra musicians enjoying the precious treasures the old town has to offer, you will be convinced that Colmar and its festival are definitely worth the detour.

A PROPOS DU FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL DE COLMAR

Direction artistique : Vladimir Spivakov

Chaque année, le choix d’un thème porteur assure au Festival un concept pérenne. Ainsi l’hommage annuel rendu à un grand musicien devient le fil conducteur, permet d’aborder tous les répertoires et ouvre de nouveaux horizons : hommage à un instrument, à un pays, à une culture… Cette approche confère à l’ensemble de la programmation musicale une unité et une cohérence artistique qui lui permet d’accueillir les plus grands musiciens de la scène classique actuelle et un public fidèle.
