In 2013, Colmar International Festival will celebrate its 25th year under the artistic direction of Vladimir Spivakov. This is a unique occasion to look back on this quarter-century of shared emotions and success. Over the years, Colmar Festival has established itself as a major musical event in the cultural landscape of Alsace, France, Europe and abroad, recognised by media from all over the world and proud of its ever-increasing visitor numbers.
The programme for this “anniversary” edition will offer a range of celebrations, with no fewer than 28 concerts: the Church of St. Matthew, the Koïfhus and the Chapel of St. Peter will welcome the greatest musicians of our time, as they do every year. The main room at the Municipal Theatre will open for three Festival “afternoons”, and an exceptional concert will be held once more at Colmar Synagogue, while the “gala” concert marking the end of the 2013 Festival will take place in the outdoor theatre at the Exhibition Centre.
