Support soundSCAPE

soundSCAPE is a nonprofit organization and a labor of love, which means that most of our faculty donate their time and expertise to the festival each summer. Like most other arts organizations, COVID has impacted our ability to raise revenue. Although the festival was not able to happen in Italy this year, there are certain costs that keep the organization going throughout the year as we plan and hope for soundSCAPE 2021. We hope that you feel as strongly about the value of the soundSCAPE community as we do, and would like to ask you to consider making a donation, which will support the infrastructure that brought this year’s mini-festival to life. You can make your online donation here


About soundSCAPE:

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. soundSCAPE supports diversity in the arts through all aspects – including our programming, faculty, staff, and participants. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all involved in the festival. 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.
