The Musical Bridge is about 11 days long with master classes and joint performances between virtuoso Egyptian and Finnish musicians and opera singers.
Its aim is to boost cultural relations and promote talented Young Egyptian Musicians/singers from Cairo Opera House. Some of them are later invited to continue their studies at the Savonlinna International Music Academy and perform during the famous Savonlinna Opera Festival.
