Come and be a part of the most magical festival for young musicians and music lovers in Europe! With our brilliant resident orchestra, our students have the opportunity to work with and perform the Concerto Repertoire in some of the most exquisite venues that Italy has to offer! With a world class faculty from the most prestigious music schools, students leave our festival inspired, on fire, and transformed!


History


Among the great professors who came to MusicFest Perugia inspire us during the years: Gary Graffman, Boris Slutzki, Arie Vardi, Alexander Korsantia, Joseph Kalichstein, Yuki Yokoyama, Sergei Babayan, Peter Frankl, Sharon Cristman, Luigi Alva, Bruno Pratico, Bruno De Simone. While the festival has historically been based on young pianists, we have since gone on to incorporate vocalists and strings. The stage production of "Rigoletto" in Castiglione del Lago and Perugia was a huge success, as was this year's fully staged production of "Don Giovanni."
