Bringing together professional and young artists from across the world

Welcome to the 7th edition of the Talis Festival & Academy!

We are delighted to announce that in 2020 we will be returning to the scenic city of Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina. What better place to host the Talis Festival & Academy than the vibrant city of Sarajevo, which offers one of a kind fusion of Eastern and Western cultures, with architecture from the Ottoman era juxtaposed with Austro-Hungarian buildings. Talis Festival will again have the honor to perform in the grandiose City Hall. 

We continue our tradition by offering music for everyone, from timeless Classics to newly written Contemporary. This season we will celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven by featuring one of his masterpieces  every evening. In addition, each concert will begin with a work by a Talis composer, who will be present at the performance and later have the opportunity to meet. The open rehearsals remain one of our most essentials features, where the audience can witness the learning process and later enjoy the performances in the concerts. 

We are very excited to bring extraordinary music and new talent back to Sarajevo! We look forward to performing and meeting new audiences!

Many thanks, herzlichen Dank, hvala lijepo!
