Orvieto Musica 2022 and COVID-19
While the world’s population continues to navigate these unprecedented times, we are hopeful and optimistic about sharing music during the summer of 2022 with our Orvietani friends, and we are also cautious. Our fundamental concerns remain the health, safety and well-being of our participants, faculty and staff. We continue to watch recommendations from the US State Department, the CDC, the WHO, and other local agencies. We will post up-to-date information below as the year progresses.
UPDATE (August 5, 2021)
We celebrate the fact that we were able to hold Orvieto Musica 2021 “on the ground” in Orvieto, Italy this past summer! It seemed almost like a miracle that we could be there and present live performances — a miracle of planning, science and fortunate timing. Our first concert, on June 26th, was the first public event in Orvieto since March of 2020. We were moved to have had this opportunity to share our music with our audience of friends and European tourists alike, and moved by their warm and emotional welcome. This is truly what Orvieto Musica aspires to and what motivates us — being able to present chamber music in intimate settings in a town that is our home for three weeks, and for audiences who are friends and new acquaintances that value and enjoy classical music.
PLANNING FOR ORVIETO MUSICA 2022
At the moment we are confident in and planning for our optimum festival in 2022 that will comprise Art of Song (8 singers), Intensive Strings (8 string players), 2 Collaborative Pianists and TrumpetFest (15-20 trumpeters) plus faculty, guest faculty and staff. Applications for participation are now being considered.
We look forward to being in touch!
