Alcoholic Beverages Policy Form (due April 20)

In Italy, alcoholic beverages are a part of the culture. The government enforces no minimum age for drinking alcohol, and alcoholic beverages are available in all eating establishments.

Orvieto is a small, quiet town (with a population of 5,000). The restaurants that Orvieto Musica patronize are family-run businesses and cafeterias.

It is the policy of Orvieto Musica not to encourage what would be considered “underage” drinking in the United States. However, Orvieto Musica does not attempt to enforce United States alcoholic beverage laws in Italy. When Orvieto Musica participants share meals with Orvieto Musica staff and faculty, wine and beer will be available at the table (along with water and soft drinks).

Orvieto Musica expects participants under the age of 21 to follow their own personal and family values in their decision regarding drinking alcoholic beverages during the festival in Italy.

Orvieto Musica reserves the right, however, to deny continued participation in the festival to any participant, regardless of age, who, in the opinion of Orvieto Musica staff:

1) drinks such that they are a danger to themselves or to others;

2) drinks such that they are unable to attend and participate fully and professionally in all rehearsals, performances and activities of the festival.

All participants, regardless of age, must submit the form below. If you are under 21, your parent or guardian must submit the form as well.
