Over four weeks in July and August 2016, Music Fest Perugia provides a challenging but inviting environment for young performers aimed at keeping the classical repertoire vibrant and alive. During the festival, students take private lessons, perform in master classes and have the opportunity to fill Perugia`s beautiful and historic halls (Sala dei Notari and Basilica di San Pietro, the latter a favorite of Herbert Karajan and Maria Callas) with recitals and concerti accompanied by our excellent festival orchestras.
Over 120 young musicians played with our excellent orchestra: Filharmonica di Universita' di Alicante in 2015. At least the same number, if not more, will play with the orchestra this year.
We had over 20 concerts with orchestra, 25 masterclasses, 12 marathon recitals, 6 chamber music concerts, and a fully staged and costumed production of Mozart's Don Giovanni performed.
This year we are doing two operas: the Enchanted Flute the 30th July at teatro Morlacchi and the Italiana in Algeri the 21st August at teatro Pavone.
