Summer Workshop - Sondalo, Italy

The next summer workshop of the Musicando Academy will be held from August 1st to 9th, 2020 at Sondalo, in the Valtellina area of the Alps (Northern Italy). Our headquarters will be the Vallesana centre, an early 20th-century Liberty-style building offering accommodation, a restaurant, many rehearsal rooms and wonderful views of the surrounding mountains!

Thanks to a collaboration with the prestigious Società dei Concerti di Milano, we will become the residence orchestra of their Mondadizza Music Week festival: in addition to performing Tchaikovsky's 6th symphony, we will also accompany a trio of young  soloists in Beethoven's Triple Concerto. The study will be divided between tutti rehearsals conducted by M° Matthieu Mantanus and sectional rehearsals conducted by our team of professional coaches for the various sections of the orchestra.

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, hiking 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 two concerts in the area.
