Dear friends and supporters,

I hope that this message finds you safe and well in the midst of uncertainties. I am writing to inform you that due to COVID-19, 2020 soundSCAPE Festival will be cancelled. We are very sorry that we will not be able to meet and work with a fantastic group of musicians in beautiful Cesena this summer.

Our team has worked very hard up to this point to prepare for the 2020 edition. We are very sad and disappointed that we can not go ahead with the festival because safety and wellbeing of our community must come first. We will continue to support our alumni and prospective participants as we continue to cultivate the soundSCAPE community internationally.

Sincerely yours,

Aiyun Huang, Artistic Director

soundSCAPE facilitates the flowering of new music and the exchange of ideas and culture between musicians of tomorrow’s generation. We attract composers and performers from around the world for two weeks of concerts, lectures, master classes and workshops. The essence of the festival is one of process and collaboration – giving rise to new music initiatives that have flourished long beyond the festival, all around the globe. We approach all music with open ears and a passion for making your voice heard… please join us for a celebration of new music!

soundSCAPE is hosted by Conservatorio Bruno Maderna, Paolo Chiavacci, conservatory director.
