The IX International Music Festival “Music in Old Lviv”, which will be held from August 15 to 28, will be a pleasant last chord of the Lviv artistic summer.

The main concept of this year’s International Festival “Music in Old Lviv” within the framework of partnership with the “Music in Old Krakow” festival is to present Lviv as a city with a special architectural and historical landscape, monuments of European culture, and stories, traditions, interactive ideas, and creative realities.

The organizer of the festival during these years is the Lviv National Philharmonic, the director – Serhiy Burko.

This year, guests can expect six unique events, each of which will demonstrate the multidimensionality, diversity, and uniqueness of the city’s musical culture! These are organ events, concerts of spiritual, ancient music, and well-known and beloved classical compositions in unique performances by well-known groups and soloists.

A storm of feelings, brightness of impressions, pomp, and majesty – each piece of the program will immerse us in the era of magnificent palaces and temples, exquisite royal receptions, and sophisticated musical evenings.
