Under the sign of the primordial instincts that guide both our senses and perceptions, we discover a series of concerts, ensembles, artists, and works that provoke and invite to reflection. The themes approached during the events emphasize feminism in classical music, authenticity, and viscerality, as well as the celebration of human feelings. Stepping into the world of Classix 2022, we will discover beauty in a feminine form – mystical, full of power, and ready to impress with details. The primordial instinct will lead us to the temporary abandonment of the music, embracing the power of rhythm.


Organized by Asociația Industrii Creative and Showberry, the third edition of Classix Festival took place between February 13th and 19th, 2022 in a hybrid format (physical and online), bringing together in Iasi over 60 international classical music personalities from 14 countries.

The festival program included 8 classical music concerts held in locations such as the Palace of Culture, the “Vasile Alecsandri” National Theater, the “Mihai Eminescu” Central University Library, as well as a series of related events: a vernissage, a film screening, debates, lectures, and masterclasses.
