Academy Festival Istanbul Celebrates Peace and Music in 2022
LocksBridge Artist Management proudly partnered with the Academy Festival Istanbul for its second year, which took place from September 6 to 23 at the Cemal Reşit Rey Concert Hall. The festival’s theme was centered on peace and Istanbul, offering a rich program of workshops, talks, youth concerts, and children’s activities.
The festival attracted a diverse audience and featured star names and legendary chamber music groups, including Tedi Papavrami, François-Frédéric Guy, Miguel da Silva, Frans Helmerson, Jacques Ammon, and Jerusalem Quartet. Founded by cellist Nil Kocamangil and LocksBridge Artist Management, the Istanbul International Chamber Music Festival received the contributions of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality.
This year’s festival was inspired by the meaningful words of conductor Zubin Mehta: “Music is the message of peace, and music only brings peace.” We are thrilled to have partnered with such an esteemed event, and we look forward to future collaborations.
