We are pleased to announce the 4th International Chamber and Solo Music Festival (ICMF) and Tour of scenic Bulgaria that
includes side trips to the Land of Dracula, Romania and the holiday destination #1 in Europe, Greece! Centered mainly in the charming
town of Gabrovo in central Bulgaria, home to the House of Humor and Satire, the festival involves concerts and sight-seeing trips to
historic sites in the picturesque Balkan Mountain and Danube regions. This unique historical and cultural opportunity offers an
unforgettable experience for seasoned travelers, enthusiasts, and first time explorers. At ICMF you will get the chance to engage in
intensive study with world-class chamber, solo instrumentalists, and vocal musicians and teachers from around the world.
Participation in the festival is open to musicians of any age or musical ability. Performing participants will be placed in one of four
divisions: junior, pre-college, college and adult, and non performing participants will have access to the same musical
resources and many additional activities. The four festival concerts, including a combined concert with members of the
Gabrovo Chamber Orchestra will take place in the festival town of Gabrovo. If you’re ready for a once-in-a-lifetime
musical and cultural experience in one of the world’s best kept secrets, register today for ICMF 2015!
