Viganò (LC)

20 - 27 August 2017


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, 8 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.

The Campus courses are open to students, professionals and amateurs, with no age limit, and they can take part as members of the association, as actual 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.

Singing will play a major role in this edition of Music In The Park – also seen through work using the voice as an instrument of the body, guided by an actor – with particular focus on a ‘liederistic’ repertoire and therefore with special attention to the relationship between the piano and the viola.

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.
