Amalfi Coast Music & Arts Festival
More than a series of concerts, the festival is a Chautauqua-style social experiment in the arts on an international level. The festival is a vibrant community that brings together performing artists, visual artists, students, teachers, and music aficionados from different countries to interact and learn from each other while involved in the creative process. In this stimulating and supportive environment, participants form long-lasting friendships and professional associations.
Musicians and singers embarking upon a professional career gain invaluable performing experience. Visual artists present their work at festival exhibitions. The festival embraces the wider community and creates ongoing cultural exchanges by inviting Italian artists, students and teachers to participate in its symposia, master classes, and social events. Local towns are involved in the festivities by hosting receptions and boat rides; mayors and ambassadors lend their support and attend the dinner.
