II VilaNova Chamber Music Festival in Monchique 2023

II VILANOVA CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL IN MONCHIQUE 2023The II VilaNova Chamber Music Festival will take place in Monchique on November 3, 4, and 5, 2023, at the Main Church - Igreja Matriz, with free admission. This event brings together classical music enthusiasts, both performers and listeners.

Monchique is home to highly skilled musicians, particularly pianists and cellists, who aim to share their expertise with the local community and cultivate an appreciation for this genre of music, in collaboration with other artists from the Algarve.
