Bilbao classical music festival returns

Over 1,500 musicians will take part in this year’s ‘Musika : Música‘ festival in Bilbao, which takes place from 28 February to 3 March.

Organised by the Fundación Bilbao 700, the aim of the event is to make classical music more accessible to local audiences and each year offers an original programme featuring the work of composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi, Schubert and Chopin, among others.
