A new summer course-festival for contemporary music is born in the amazing unesco heritage site of San Marino!
For the 2017 edition (July 18-28th) join Elliott Sharp (composition and electronic composition course, with Gianluca Verlingieri as assistant composer) and other world renowned experts from each group of instruments (Rohan de Saram (cello), Magnus Andersson (guitar), John Kenny (trombone), Roberto Fabbriciani (flute), Ars Ludi (percussions), Nicholas Isherwood (singing) to make great new music!
In addition to the usual daily lessons, there will be a focus on improvisation, music theater and composer-performers in daily afternoon classes taught by faculty. Students will not only work with the expert in their chosen discipline, but will have the opportunity to study with ALL of our faculty.
Cash prize in performance and composition will give the winner a chance to perform a solo recital and write a piece for faculty to be presented in the 2018 New Music Project. Instead of sight read performances, student and faculty will present carefully prepared pieces in quality evenings.
The narrow aesthetic preferences defended by some will be replaced by an open minded perspective embracing all forward looking tendencies in new music.
A wide network of hotels / B&Bs / restaurants with special prices will be available to students
