There’s a first time for everything, and for Festival&Friends that first was in the summer of 2020. We are so excited and grateful to once again welcome you in the beautiful hall of KoncertKirken at Nørrebro (CPH) for the fourth edition of our humble neighbourhood chamber music festival, coming up in June 2023. Even though it's the fourth of its kind, every festival is a bit of a first even to us, as we strive to continuously challenge the approach towards classical music - wanting to present new classical music experiences with an including and accessible attitude.
We wish for Festival&Friends to be an exciting social and musical experience for everyone involved – our dear musicians, guests and staff – and think of this idea as a recipe for making the festival experience personal and warm.
Although our speciality is classical music, we are a festival for everyone. All concert experiences are a first – whether you know the music or not! And the great thing about festivals is their way of embodying the special relations and friendships we form through listening, performing and exploring music together.
We have been aiming for more diversity in the repertoire and found pieces that we know even ‘connoisseurs’ of classical music have never heard (of) before … but no need to worry! We still care for oldies but goodies and embrace the opportunity to lean back with something you might already know the flavour of. Hopefully, you’ll feel inspired to challenge your taste buds just a little!
We are always looking for more volunteers during the festival. Let us of know if you are interested!
