Part of Møn Sommerkoncert's identity is to convey classical music in new ways, and at the same time to help break down the prejudices and boundaries about classical music that can deter new audiences from discovering classical music.
In 2023, Møn Summer Concert will for the first time be found in many more places than Møn, when we present concerts at home and abroad with our own concert programs.
We continue to do this, both through our concert programs that we create especially for our festival, and then also by carefully considering the atmosphere that forms the framework for a good concert experience.
With our new season organized according to this - being applied to both concert programs with guest artists and concerts with our own Festival Ensemble - we look forward to bid welcome at Møn Sommerkoncert many places around the world.
