Pavia, Italy — Avi Avital will lead a new mandolin class during the 4th edition of the soundSCAPE Festival in the charming north-Italian town of Pavia, Italy on July 14-26, 2009.
soundSCAPE facilitates the exchange of new music, ideas, and culture between musicians of tomorrow's generation, providing composers and musicians an international platform for performances of new music.
The festival annually attracts participants from around the world for two weeks of inspiring concerts, lectures, master classes, and workshops.
The 2009 festival offers performance studies and composition opportunities in flute, guitar, mandolin, piano, percussion, violin, and voice. The music of emerging composers is featured in open rehearsals, the Composition Colloquium, and in recorded performances.
In turn, performers receive coaching from composers, complementing instruction in modern performance techniques from an internationally renowned faculty.
The experiences of soundSCAPE resonate well beyond the festival, as participants develop a myriad of collaborative initiatives resulting in future commissions, performances, and careers.
NOTE: Extended application deadline for mandolin players!
