The 2020 Adult Amateur Chamber Music Program at the Brancaleoni International Music Festival will take place from July 19-25. This unique program offers adult pianists and string players the opportunity to study with our internationally renowned artist-faculty. Surrounded by the beauty and majesty of the 13th-century Brancaleoni Castle, participants will collaborate with fellow pianists, string players, and associate faculty drawn from our premier festival participants. Groups will coach with distinguished international faculty and perform on the festival’s concert series.
Pre-formed groups as well as individual string players and pianists are invited to apply. Participants will receive private lessons and will enjoy lectures and workshops by Artist-Faculty.
All rehearsals, lessons, classes, and concerts take place at the Brancaleoni Castle, in the charming town of Piobbico (about 2 hours southeast from Florence and 1.5 hours south of Bologna). Program participants will experience the local culture through Italian language and culture classes, as well as an Italian cooking class. Join us this summer season and immerse yourself in the music and culture of this exquisite region.
Your tax-deductible tuition supports the scholarship fund for the Emerging Artists of our Piano and Strings Chamber Music Division.
The final application deadline is March 1, 2020. The festival will run from July 19-25, 2020, with July 19 being the arrival date and July 25 the departure date.
