Viganò (LC)

18 - 28 August 2019


The Cultural Association, AGORARTE is once again organizing the Music in the Park, hosted by Viganò City Council with the intention of offering students, professional musicians, and enthusiasts, 10 days of full musical conversation, alternating between lessons, conferences, labs, musical aperitifs, and concerts. Shared convivial moments, along the paths and in hidden corners of the Montevecchia and Curone Valley Regional Park, with the idea that Music and Nature are part of the same Beauty.

This year in its fifth edition, Musica nel Parco is promoting itself as a large workshop dedicated to group music in its varying forms: a Chamber Music course (for all Instrument Families) and one of Vocal Chamber Music (open to singers and pianists) with the possibility of lessons for individual improvement, which will interconnect with their other activities and will be integrated with a seminar on the Functional Vocal Method, a shared moment with all the participants and a starting point for the Choral Workshop. An Orchestral Workshop, completed with a theoretical part, dedicated to the study of executional and compositional techniques and of musicological research.

Ludwig van Beethoven will be the central theme this year, with Lieder for voice and instruments, instrumental works for strings, strings and choir, and Symphony No. 4, our ambitious goal for the closing concert.

To the smallest participants and to those of you who recognize yourselves as beginners whatever your age, the Campus is dedicating the first five days, with three proposals: MusicaInsieme -a Music Group for any age of student; CantiamoInsieme - a vocal workshop for children’s voices; Plastiche sonore - a collective and fun workshop with the Boomwhackers; Vedo, sento suono!, musical workshops for families; In principio era il Ritmo! - a workshop dedicated to the world of percussion with a special focus on the drums, and our first foray into a musical language connected to Jazz and other musical worlds.The young Salvatore Passantino will be collaborating in the workshops, as guest composer.

For those who also wish to prepare a solo repertoire and/or to perfect specific technical aspects, Musica nel Parco offers the possibility of individual singing, violin or cello lessons.

The pianists who take part in the Chamber Music and Vocal Chamber Music courses, will also be tutored individually in the preparation of the chosen works.

Just as every year, alongside the lessons, a whole list of activities - FuoriCampus – in which pupils and teachers will alternate between being actors and spectators, opening the Campus doors both to citizens in the local community and to interested passers-by.

The Campus courses are open to students, professionals and amateurs of any age, nationality, religion or gender, with no exception, who can take part as Association Members, either as participating students, or simply as listeners.

Designed as a residential course, the Campus offers participants the opportunity to discover a beautiful yet little known area, just a few minutes from Lake Como, situated between the cities of Milan, Bergamo, and Lecco, and to come into contact with those local realities which keep memories of the past, and traditions alive.

We believe that Culture and Art in particular are both fundamental for the formation of the individual and that they are an exceptional and uniting resource, above all in this period of cultural crisis. For this motive, Agorarte would like to make the Campus available to everybody, and asks whoever has the possibility, to welcome into their homes, the young people who would like to take part but who don’t have the means.


 Musica nel parco 2019 is dedicated to the memory of Guglielmo Teruzzi, our great friend, memebrs of Agorarte, and to his passion for music.
