We are thrilled to announce our return to an in-person festival, hosted in the town of Bobbio, Italy. Bobbio is nestled at the foot of Monte Penice, in the heart of Val Trebbia – a valley described by Ernest Hemingway as “the most beautiful in the world.” A coveted destination known for its celebration of music, film, art and ancient artifacts, soundSCAPE will feel right at home in this idyllic retreat for our rising artists to hone in on their craft, while enjoying all the town and its surrounding nature has to offer. 

soundSCAPE facilitates the flowering of new music and the exchange of ideas and culture between musicians of tomorrow’s generation. We offer an unparalleled collaborative environment for composers and performers to come together and create new music together. Over the course of 10 days, participants will attend daily concerts, lectures, master classes and workshops led by our world-class faculty of contemporary musicians.

Our 2022 Faculty includes: 

Tony Arnold, voice
Lisa Cella, flute
Shih-Hui Chen, composition
Felix Fan, cello
Mark Fewer, violin
Aiyun Huang, percussion
Denis Martin, sound engineering
Marcela Pavia, composition
Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez, composition
Thomas Rosenkranz, piano
Joshua Rubin, clarinet
