Festival Suoni d’Abruzzo is one of the most anticipated cultural events in the Abruzzo region, on the Adriatic coast of Italy. Rehearsals, masterclasses and workshops are open to the public; concerts feature classical and contemporary masterworks performed by world-renowned musicians. The festival attracts chamber music enthusiasts from around the world and achieves outstanding reviews every year.
In addition to the concert series the festival hosts the FSDA Chamber Music Institute. Students from all over the world travel to Abruzzo to attend an intensive training program held by internationally renowned pedagogues and soloists. The live performances integrate our faculty and students for a unique chance of mentorship and professional growth.
Each participant receives musical instruction of the highest caliber through daily individual applied lessons, chamber music classes, masterclasses, lectures and seminars.
The FSDA Chamber Music Institute is open to college and pre-college pianists, violinists, violists, cellists, bassists, guitarists, clarinetists, flutist, hornists, oboists, bassoonists, percussionists, classical singers.
College students are auditioned and assigned to a main professor and to two/three chamber music ensembles.
Pre-college students are auditioned and assigned both according to their expertise and age to the most suitable instructors and chamber music ensembles.
FSDA faculty perform with both college and pre-college chamber music ensembles: we strongly believe in the value of performing with seasoned professionals and being influenced by their approach.
