ANNUALLY IN SEPTEMBER
One of the islands’ most distinguished festivals, the Paxos International Music Festival had humble beginnings, starting in 1986 as a series of small performances under the olive trees in the garden of the late John Gough, a passionate musician and long-term resident of the island.
Now in its 27th year, this small festival of classical concerts has seen prizewinning students from every corner of the globe perform, many of whom go on to become international figures in the music world. The festival gives its audience a chance to see the musical talent of tomorrow amid beautiful surroundings and for those who love classical music it’s an occasion not to be missed.
