I can still remember my first visit of the Merano Classic Festival. I was a little girl and very excited, because I had the honor to go in a well-known concert with my parents. As a child you see all over with different eyes. I was amazed from many adults, elegantly dressed and watching with shiny eyes to the action on stage and listening to the magical sounds. I wanted to dress me elegantly too, like my parents, so I wore my pink Tutu. And I was proud of me. Than arrived this long wished evening in the Merano city centre. I was able to keep my legs quietly for two hours as well as the adults and it wasn´t difficult to me, because it was incredibly exciting to me as a little girl.
Now, 25 years later, it is time again. The world famous and fascinating Merano Music Festival will be held for the 31st time, always in Merano Kurhaus, directly in the city centre. These were introduced on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the city of Merano and still touch the audience with their artists from all over the world.
From Tuesday, August 23, 2016 until September 22, 2016 you will have the chance to overhear numerous world- famous musicians in the famous “Kursaal” in the center of Merano, just 50 meters next to Boutique & Design Hotel ImperialArt. Fine instruments and international melodies seduce from classical to baroque all listeners.
