In 2004, a group of enthusiasts decided to associate the name of the great Austrian composer Mozart with Pravets and established a municipal association “Mozart Celebrations Pravets ’04”. The main goal of the association is to organize and hold an annual festival, which has no analogue in Bulgaria and the region, to promote Mozart’s work, to attract young and established opera talents and musicians, to work for the education of the audience through a variety of musical -stage forms and educational initiatives. Since then, the organizers have not missed a year and the Mozart Festival is already having its own history and traditions.
Since 2012, the Music Festival “Mozart Celebrations” in Pravets is included in the national cultural calendar of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Bulgaria.

From 2010 to March 2012 Hristina Angelakova was the chairman of the Association “Mozart Celebrations-Pravets’04”. After the successful edition of the festival in 2011, the strategy for the development of the festival was adopted and approved, focusing on the construction of an open stage on the lake in front of RIU PRAVETS hotel and the prospects for a new festival format, similar to the prestigious European summer music festivals.
Mr. Lachezar Todorov has been the Chairman of the Board since June 2012, and the creative activity is entrusted to the opera prima Hristina Angelakova – artistic director, who for many years has been supporting the realization of the festival events in Pravets.
