A Music Festival for a Lifetime

Each day will bring an opportunity to hear quartets, symphonic and chamber orchestras, choral arrangements, and soloists from throughout the world.

While many musical presentations will take place in the lovely piazzie of Anghiari, others will be located in Tuscan countryside locations such as churches and neighboring villages.

These outstanding graduate musicians from throughout the world are often available for personal discussions before and after concerts and can also be found exploring the wondrous Italian sites we will discover.
