Chamber Music in the Heart of Italy

June 14 – July 5, 2020

At Orvieto Musica, the charm of living in a 12th century Italian hill town is surpassed only by the pleasure of playing and singing chamber music every day. Living in apartments, eating fresh to order meals in local restaurants, relaxing into the rhythm of “riposo” every afternoon, and being welcomed by the townspeople who eagerly await your concerts free you to focus intensely on making wonderful music with your colleagues in beautiful performance venues.

During this three-week performance workshop, Orvieto Musica challenges emerging artists in their pursuit of musical excellence amidst the beauty and international life of small-town Italy, providing a supportive, intense, and inspiring environment.

A Statement Regarding COVID-19

We began 2020 eagerly planning for our 27th festival in Orvieto. Once the world shut down to control the spread of COVID-19, we cautiously planned to postpone the festival until later in the summer, assuming new cases of the virus were under control and that travel would be allowed by the US State Department. We were hopeful that we could carry forward our tradition of sharing our music with our Orvietani friends and contribute to the economy in Orvieto, as we have been doing for 26 years.

Unfortunately, postponement will not be possible. 

During the history of Orvieto Musica we have brought musicians from many states and, often, from other countries as well to Orvieto. It became clear that it would not be possible for us to guarantee the health and wellbeing of either our musicians or the citizens of Orvieto.  Therefore, the Board of Orvieto Musica, Inc. decided that it was necessary for us to cancel Orvieto Musica 2020 completely.

We will miss the warm welcome of our friends in Orvieto, presenting concerts in beautiful venues, walking down the streets, listening to the church bells, and admiring the beautiful views. We know that we will see each other soon, and we wish only the best for Orvieto and for Italy.

During our time away, visit our Facebook page or Instagram page to view clips and photos from our 26 years.

 

Abbiamo iniziato 2020 pianificando con gusto per il festival dell’edizione ventisettesimo di Orvieto Musica.  Dopo che il crisi di COVID-19 abbia cessato l’attività di molti paesi, comunque, il Consiglio Direttivo ha preso la decisione di rinviare OM 2020 fino ad agosto, sperando che il contagio del virus potrebbe ridotto e che L’Ufficio Affare Esteri degli stati uniti permetterebbe che i cittadini viaggino internazionalmente.

Speravamo che potremmo far progredire la nostra tradizione di condividere i nostri concerti con gli amici orvietani nostri.  Anche speravamo di poter contribuire all’economia di Orvieto come abbiamo potuto fare per 26 anni, particolarmente durante questo periodo arduo.

Purtroppo, il rinvio di Orvieto Musica 2020 non sarà possibile.

 Per ogni edizione di Orvieto Musica abbiamo portato ad Orvieto musicisti provenienti da molte zone degli Stati Uniti e, molte volte, anche da altri paesi.   Adesso purtroppo non sarebbe possibile per noi garantire la sicurezza sanitaria nè dei nostri musicisti nè dei cittadini di Orvieto.

Quindi, il Consiglio di Orvieto Musica ha preso la decisione infelice di annullare OM 2020 completamente.

Ci mancherà il benvenuto affettuoso dei nostri amici ad Orvieto, poter presentare concerti in spazi incantevoli, camminare per le strade, ascoltare le campane delle chiese e guardare il bel paesaggio.  Ma sappiamo che ci vedremo ancora una volta a breve e Vi auguriamo il
meglio per Orvieto e per l’Italia in questa nuova fase di ripresa estiva.

Fino a quel momento di rivederci Vi preghiamo di fare una visita alle nostre pagine Facebook o Instagram per guardare dei videoclip e/o delle foto presi dai nostri 26 anni di concerti.
