Welcome to Os Agostos

Let’s go

We are here for you

The “Associação de Amigos de Música” is a registered, non-profit, private membership club that brings together an international group of friends of music in the Algarve. Now around 100 “Amigos” share in our achievements and help us go further in our ambitions.

By providing crucial support to our concert season as well as our Young Portuguese Musicians Scholarship programme, Amigos are at the heart of our Friends of Music Club.

I am surprised that I am able to write this as my hands are still in applauding mode after last night’s incredible concert.

I love the idea of experiencing music in pleasant surroundings and informal gatherings with the artists before or after the concerts.

 
Cornelia Castan, Member of Amigos

I am delighted, as Artistic Director of the quadrennial Sydney International Piano Competition, to be able to offer a recital or two for the Amigos to the winners. I know they will be welcomed into a special family of musical friends and that lives will inevitably be mutually enriched.

Why do we like coming to the Amigos de Musica? We love classical music and appreciate the opportunity to hear first class performances by a variety of exceptionally gifted musicians in a superb location; we also enjoy seeing our friends and meeting new Amigos who have similar interests.

 
Liz and Roger, Member of the Amigos

The excellent concerts given by artists, carefully selected by a formidable classic music connoisseur and also president of the Amigos da Musica association, Helga Hampton, are always a highlight in my calendar.

An artist coming to play for the Amigos is well taken care of, by persons with great respect for art and for the artist.  Like the name says, when you play for the Amigos, you are between friends.  It makes it really stimulating and meaningful to perform great music there.

 
Anne Kaasa, Pianist

I love coming to play in Algarve – it’s so beautiful and peaceful.

I feel warmly welcomed by Amigos de Musica. Concerts are always so well attended, and audience is most knowledgeable and appreciative. It’s also so inspiring practicing in these surroundings- I always look forward to coming back.

 
Katya Apekisheva, Pianist
