Event Date & Time:
Cantilena Festival on Islay is a unique and established music festival which has been taking place on the beautiful Scottish Isle of Islay for over 10 years.
Each year, a group of world-class musicians travel to Islay to perform an ever evolving repertoire from the world of classical music. Cantilena Festival on Islay aims to develop new and specific sounds and styles of playing, both corporate and individual, in an atmosphere and environment away from the pressures of a professional musician’s life. The professionals involved in Cantilena Festival on Islay are driven by a powerful desire to share their ideas and passionate love of music-making with the emerging generation. Each year the professionals are joined by one or more young musicians who benefit greatly from the opportunity of working alongside more experienced players.
