LMFL (Language and Music for Life) Florence Summer Music Course 2020

August 9 @ 8:00 am - August 22 @ 5:00 pm BST

LMFL String orchestra

LMFL’s 2020 course in Florence is a specialised course by world renowned faculty for Advanced Level students,  amateurs and professionals.

Participants

We welcome students from + 17 years old and upwards. We also welcome younger advanced students accompanied by at least one parent.

All students must be advanced level in at least one discipline, other choices can be at lower level.

Venue

The course will be hosted under the auspices of the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubin at the Villa Favard di Rovezzano which is the oldest part of the Conservatorio site, in the middle of a substantial, magical botanical park with roses and Cedar trees.

Villa Favard di Rovezzano has a large number of piano studios (including grand pianos), lots of music studios and a concert hall.

Florence/Firenze is the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany and birthplace of the Renaissance. It is home to masterpieces of art and architecture and was at the heart of much of our entire Western musical tradition. It was here that the Florentine Camerata convened in the mid-16th century and experimented with setting tales of Greek mythology to music and staging the result—in other words, the first operas, setting the wheels in motion not just for the further development of the operatic form, but for later developments of separate “classical” forms such as the symphony.

This seems an ideal setting for our course where we can enjoy working in the midst of beauty, elegance and serenity.
