The summer school “Castelluccio tra Musica e Natura was born with the aim to create a balance between the study of musical disciplines and the immersion in the natural beauty of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine.

Our strength is the extraordinary variety of music genres offered to provide a complete picture of the contemporary music scene. The first week course (classical) is entirely dedicated to the tradition of classical, baroque and contemporary music while the second week course (classical and beyond) will merge classical music with jazz, ethnic music and pop cultures.

Throughout the whole period students will follow individual lessons with their tutors  (all of them well-established concertos and conservatory teachers). They will also have a piano accompanist for solo songs, the chance to form small chamber ensembles, as well as an orchestra experience for the preparation to the final concert. The mornings and late afternoons will be dedicated to individual lessons and chamber ensembles, while in the early part of the afternoon the orchestra performances will take place.

There are some extra-musical classes open to both parents and creative students (through music and literature comparison), rhythm and stage presence (through flamenco language). The two final concerts will take place on August 28th at the end of the first period and on September 3rd at the end of the second. Individual essays and chamber music classes will be organized during the other days.

The stunning residence inside the charming Manservisi Castle will encourage  to create that special atmosphere that will make your stay an unforgettable experience. There is a canteen service inside the Museum, alongside the Castle, open to all participants.

“Castelluccio tra Musica e Natura” is the ideal playground for all those who love music, nature and arts, from young people to adults, from amateurs to professionals: a unique opportunity to deepen the most universal language with worldwide renowned artists.
