Organized by:


On Sunday, October 23, from 17:00, the fortified Church of Mălâncrav will light its lanterns on the occasion of a inovative concert.
The "Residence Transilvanica" project proposes you to rediscover the enchanted land of Transylvania through six compositions inspired by six emblematic edifices, a cultural itinerary that also includes the fortified Church of Mălâncrav.
This concert, in particular, will be an opportunity to give back to the local community the story of these places revitalized by the versatile range of new music.
Results of an extensive immersive research project, the pieces in the program will be accompanied by the story of each space, part of a cultural route that began in the concert hall, on the stage of the State Philharmonic in Sibiu, and will continue step by step.

🎉 On Sunday, 11 artists will perform under the inspiration of the villages of Biertan, Copșa Mare, Cund, Valea Viilor, Cloașterf and Mălâncrav.
Access is free, subject to available seats, by reservation at
