The International Festival of the Aegean, which takes place annually on the Island of Syros, Greece, was founded in 2005 by the Greek-American conductor Peter Tiboris. Now entering its eighth season, the Festival attracts world-class musicians, dancers, and actors, and has become a summer destination for lovers of the arts from Europe and beyond. In 2011, the Festival was named “Best cultural organization operating in the wider region of Greece” by the Awards Committee of Music Critics of the Union of Greek Theatre and Music Critics, based in Athens, Greece.
Eminent artists from across the world will participate at the events ensuring exciting entertainment for visitors. Under the guidance of Peter Tiboris, Founder, General Director and Artistic Director of the Festival, a total of 400 artists including 19 choirs from the US, Canada, France and Greece will perform for audiences.
