Summer Workshop - Tignano, Italy

The next summer workshop of the Musicando Academy will be held from August 3rd to 10th, 2019 in Tuscany, at the Antico Borgo Tignano, a beautiful countryside resort located between Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano, equipped with comfortable apartments, several rooms to rehearse, a restaurant with a panoramic terrace and a large swimming pool.

This year we will study Brahms' Serenade n.1 in D-major op.11 and Elgar's "Salut d'Amour" op.12, as always with a mix of tutti rehearsals conducted by Matthieu Mantanus, and sectional rehearsals conducted by professional coaches for strings and wind.

The workshop consists of 6-7 hours' study per day, in the morning and in the end afternoon, but some free time is left for touristic excursions, relax by the pool or chamber music practice. All meals (except one dinner during the week and two dinners on the concert nights) are taken in the residence restaurant.

The workshop will terminate with one or two concerts in the area.

For musicians interested in coming with their family, various typologies of flats are available at the residence (though in limited number) with a half-board formula (without lunch) offered to spouses and children. You can also stay independently in other residences of the area, without any meal included, but keeping the possibility to eat occasionally with the group by booking with the Tignano restaurant the day before. Please contact us to find the best solution to suit your needs.
