Zêzere Arts Festival

The Zêzere Arts Festival offers solo singers the opportunity to develop their experience and advance their careers by gaining professional level performing experience. Choral singers can avail of a unique opportunity to sing together in one of the most amazing buildings in the world, the Convento de Cristo in Tomar. The festival presents performances in the town and area of Ferreira do Zêzere in central Portugal over two weeks in the summer months. The first festival took place in 2011 and we are now planning the fifth edition for July 2016.

Even though there will not be a full festival in 2015, there will be events providing performances for visitors to enjoy. Plans are underway for an exciting series of Choral Programmes and for a week of Strings Masterclasses includings chamber music and orchestral performances. Performances will be held in the Convento de Cristo in Tomar, Ferreira do Zêzere, Dornes, Batalha, Alcobaça and Vila Nova da Barquinha.
