‘The most unique and intimate classical music Summer festival in Europe’
The Sunday Times Online

2019

The next Casa dei Mezzo Chamber Music Festival will take place from Friday 21 to Monday 24 June 2019.

A music festival worthy of Vienna or London, in Makrigialos!

Many thanks to everyone, our artists, volunteers, sponsors and supportors and, of course, our audiences - who even came from as far as Los Angeles and Hong Kong - who helped to make our June 2018 festival such a huge success.

Visit our Facebook page for audience videos from our 2018 festival.

This unique music festival offers you an unforgettable opportunity to experience live performances by world-class artists in the beautiful and intimate setting of Villa Casa dei Mezzo, Makrigialos, Crete. It makes an important cultural contribution to the summer season in Makrigialos and it is the only annual classical chamber music festival that is held on Crete.
