• Mannes Festival

    Since 1999, Mannes College has presented a yearlong music festival every year. Each festival has a program of more than 20 concerts performed by Mannes' gifted young student artists, distinguished faculty members, and renowned guests and held at prestigious New York City concert venues and cultural institutions.  At most events, the festival's artistic director, Pavlina Dokovska, presents pre-concert remarks, deepening audience understanding and appreciation of the theme and the works performed. The festivals are an outstanding component of the total Mannes program.
