Festival 2016: 19th – 26th August



The Murau International Music Festival celebrates its tenth anniversary!

In honor of this occasion a number of special festival highlights await the audience and participants alike. The workshop week begins on August 14th with a creative workshop for composition. The choral workshop will start on August 16th. The participants will once again rehearse with Zane Zalis and the vocal coaches for a week and then perform as the festival choir at the final concert.  For the first time they will be reinforced by a delegation of the Canadian “Winnipeg Youth Chorus” who will also participate in the workshop.

The festival will present a series of concerts. To kick off the festival week Juan Garcia-Herreros, alias “Snow Owl”, will present Latin jazz at its finest at the opening concert on August 16th. The open air concert on August 19th creates a street festival atmosphere and gives us a taste of the final concert. On August 21st, the final concert will take place, representing the culmination of the Murau International Music Festival. Some of our favorite performers will also be in attendance and will present a crossover between pop and rock, jazz and classical music. This year Zane Zalis has composed a piece for symphonic wind orchestra that the Musikverein Stadtkapelle Murau will perform at the final concert. Composers could submit unpublished pieces by May 15th. Five selected works will be premiered at the final concert.


Celebrity guest: Luis Ribeiro

As in previous years, the artistic directorship of the festival will be assumed by the Canadian composer and conductor Zane Zalis.
