What is it about?
The Music Workshop Illicini (MWI) was born from the desire to give a chance to young musicians to study with excellent teachers, establish collaborations, exchange ideas and form new chamber music ensembles.
An effort designed to promote classical music and young musicians.
This year as well, the workshop is entirely dedicated to guitar both classical and baroque. Internationally renowned Maestros are coming from Sweden and Italy to hold masterclasses and seminars open to young musicians and to our patrons. Moreover, the Students and the Maestros of the MWI will perform several concerts in Maratea, which will be open to the public.
MWI 2016 will take place from August 29th to September 5th 2016, and the concerts will be held on August 30th and 31st and on September 3rd and 4th 2016
Through Eppela we ask your help to give our students the opportunity to work with Maestros havingdifferent areas of expertise and to play in concert, therefore taking a step forward in their career as young performers.
How funds will be used
Your help will allow us to support the travel costs of the Maestros from Italy and Sweden, and to pay their cachet. Without your contribution this would be unmanageable! In fact the students pay a low fee that covers only their personal costs (food and lodging) for the entire course.
Many thanks to all of you who will contribute in making this possible!
Who's behind the project?
The MWI is the brainchild of guitarist and composer Carlo Bruno. The workshop's venue as well as our students and Maestros accommodation is the Resort Illicini.
The municipality of Maratea, a charming town located in Southern Italy, as well as the non-profit Italian - Swedish Association Caravaggio that has been promoting Italian culture in Sweden for many years, are giving their free patronage to the MWI.
