Varna Summer International Music Festival
The “Varna Summer” International Music Festival is the first music festival in Bulgaria, founded in 1926 in the city of Varna. Almost 100 years ago, just after the official opening of the Varna’s Sea Baths in 1926 – the first SPA center in the sea town, emblematic personalities of Varna society at that time, among them the composers Pancho Vladigerov and Dobri Hristov, set the beginning of the first in the country music celebrations, which later turned into the biggest International Music Festival in Bulgaria. Having received national and international recognition, today the Festival is a representative forum of Bulgarian and world music and music performing art.
Varna Summer for Kids
Varna Summer International Music Festival is almost 100 years “young” and the young participants and audience are not only part of the artistic platform, but also the emotional charge of the festival. Young people are the festival’s absolute priority. One of the most exiting stories in the festival is the series of educational concerts named “Varna Summer for Kids”. These concerts are of great importance for creating the future audience for classical music. Every concert has a theme, for example – Spring, French Fairy, Bulgarian National Heritage and many others – to attract the attention of the youngest audience and to inspire the participation of the youngest musicians. “Varna Summer for Kids” is organised in partnership with the National School of Arts in Varna.
