Ancient Theatre

    For the 11th time, young, Greek, and foreign upcoming musicians and renowned artists met to exchange their experiences and thoughts on music and share the stage of the ancient theatre of Pythagorion in Samos. In this location of natural beauty and history, facing the sea and the shore of the neighboring country, Turkey, the music festival Samos Young Artists Festival has been held since 2010. 2021's programme stretches from pre-classical music and baroque to contemporary creations and lasted from August 7th to 13th. The festival operates under the creative direction of Masha Ilyashov and Alexis Karaiskakis-Nastos, aiming to remain a place of musical reflection and activity.
