The International Festival of the Aegean, which takes place annually on the Island of Syros, Greece, was founded in 2005 by the Greek-American conductor Peter Tiboris. Now entering its twelfth season, the Festival attracts world-class musicians, dancers, and actors from dozens of countries, and has become a summer destination for lovers of the arts from Europe and beyond. In 2011, the Festival was named "Best cultural organization operating in the wider region of Greece" by the Awards Committee of Music Critics of the Union of Greek Theatre and Music Critics, based in Athens, Greece. In December 2014, the Festival was awarded the Gina Bachauer Award as Festival of the Year.

MidAmerica Productions and MidAm International are the primary producers of this Festival in Syros. MidAmerica Productions was founded in 1983 and has produced worldwide 1300 concerts of which 550 of them have been in historic Carnegie Hall in New York City.
