Mozart Festival in Colombia

The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation supports the first Mozart Festival in Medellín in Colombia

The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation will be lending its musical support to the first Mozart Festival in Medellín in Colombia. Organized by the Academia Filarmónica Iberoamericana de Medellín with the support of the Hilti Foundation, this Festival is taking place for the first time in Medellín between 25 August and 9 September 2018. Numerous concerts and a wide range of workshops, lectures and masterclasses are all intended to shed light on the music of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. The Foundation’s president, Johannes Honsig-Erlenburg, and its managing director, Tobias Debuch, will be  travelling to Colombia’s second-largest city with the Salzburg soprano Claire Elizabeth Craig and the Thai tenor Nutthaporn Thammathi, who is singing the title role in the 2019 Mozart Week production of T.H.A.M.O.S. The two singers will be appearing at the first concert on 1 September, a concert performance of Mozart’s singspiel Der Schauspieldirektor, as well as taking part in a masterclass and performing in the Requiem with their Latin American colleagues.
