Gala Concert

The Gala Concert is the culmination of the festival.
The festival presents a crossover program of classical, pop and rock numbers, including well-known pieces and premieres of new compositions.
For the first time, MIMF has a guiding theme “Familiarity – Foreignness”. Composers were invited to submit new works especially on this subject. With the support of the Foreign Ministry it was possible to extend this special invitation worldwide. At the deadline for submissions 35 scores from home and abroad and ready for performance had been submitted. Nevertheless, only a few selected works will have their world premiere at the gala concert.
The workshop participants also have the opportunity to showcase their skills to a large audience and perform as the Festival Choir. They will receive powerful support from their vocal coaches. In addition, well-known artists such as Chilli da Mur and Die Neffen von Tante Eleonor will make guest appearances. 


Conductor: Zane Zalis

We look forward to welcoming you!
