casalmaggioreCasalmaggiore International Festival has become one of the most beloved music festivals in the world.

The intense and exhilarating three-week summer course has a reputation for integrity and quality, and often provides the springboard for an international career. Its unique, individual focus and support of students allows personal growth and on-going support.

Through its collaborations with the Lake Como Piano Academy, the Hochschule in Mainz, Villa Ricrio, Norfolk Concerts, Kulturkommunikation, Pianofortissimo, Sheva Records, E. Gre New Music Competition, MING Connection Mainz e.V. and its growing network of friends, such as the Villa Bozzi, International Klaviersommer Cochem, Isis Concert Group, Artsconverge etc., Casalmaggiore is able to give its top students a wide range of career opportunities, guidance, and financial support.

Our esteemed faculty is dedicated to nurturing the next generation of leaders and team players in the musical world, and provides council for students throughout the year.

The city of Casalmaggiore and  Amici del Casalmaggiore Festival team work hard to make the organization of the Festival run as smoothly as possible, and raise funding not just for the Festival, but for other concerts beyond the summer event.
