Festival: Apollon International Arts Festival

Biography

October 25 - 29 2016

The 3rd Apollon International Chamber Music Festival now encompasses chamber music, art exhibitions and jazz/classic-rock music and has been re-named the Apollon International Arts Festival.

The mission remains the same – to foster a greater appreciation of various forms of culture in the Mediterranean region by presenting festivals and performances featuring world-class artists in beautiful surroundings, while emphasizing the development of a broad based, sustainable audience through education.

The festival begins on 25 October 2016 with a Sonata Evening at the Pallas Theatre, Nicosia and then continues for three evenings at the Annabelle Hotel with the international group of distinguished musicians including violinists Tamsin Waley-Cohen, Katharine Gowers, Wolfgang Schroder, violist Krzysztof Chorzelski, cellist Guy Johnston and pianist Charles Owen.

The final evening on October 29, is in a lighter vein with the PapaGeorgio Quartet where classic rock meets jazz with singer Sarah Fenwick. The concert will be repeated the next evening at The Venue, Makedonitissa in Nicosia, which will also include prosecco and canapés.

The 3rd Apollon International Arts Festival will again give international visitors an opportunity to combine world class concerts in the luxurious, five star Annabelle Hotel in Paphos.

Set within six acres of lush gardens with glittering waterfalls on the Mediterranean seafront, the 5 star luxury hotel combines cool, peaceful interiors with warm, caring service in a distinct atmosphere of unpretentious elegance. The meandering freeform pools, waterfalls, palm trees and rambling flowers create a magical setting in which to enjoy a glass of wine before each evening’s concert.

There are four restaurants with seasonal produce and delicate local wines with each room having a private sea-or garden-view balcony or terrace.

Cyprus’ 600km coastline is a paradise for sun seekers and water lovers and according to the latest report from the European Environment Agency in Copenhagen, has the best water quality in the whole of Europe.

Cyprus is known as the island of sun and it’s no different in the winter. In November, temperatures remain in the 20’s with very little rainfall in the Paphos area.

Paphos, the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, is an open air museum of Byzantine churches and Roman ruins interspersed with al fresco restaurants and café bars.
