Apply to the 19th European Baroque Academy until the 22nd of December!
Instrumentalists : you can apply to the 2012 Academy conducted by Leonardo García Alarcón until the 22nd of December.
Following the huge success of the 2009 Soloist Academy, dedicated to Mozart, the 19th European Baroque Academy ventures once more away from baroque territory and into its first encounter with Gioachino Rossini. His early opera La cambiale di matrimonio ('The Marriage Contract') was composed in 1810, yet the spirit of the baroque era lives on under the direction of Leonardo García Alarcón, conductor in residence at the Ambronay Cultural Encounter Centre. The staging will be entrusted to Stephan Grögler.
31 instrumentalists will be selected all over Europe to participate in this project. The group of six young singers will be recruited in partnership with the Aix-en-Provence Festival. A training period for singers will take place in Collegio Ghislieri in Pavia (Italy) from April 30st till May 8th 2012. Rehearsals will then take place in Ambronay from June 20th till July 6th. And a european tour will follow from 8 - 31 July 2012.
The European Baroque Academy is in residence at Collegio Ghislieri in Pavia (Italy). It is a Cultural Ambassador of the European Union. This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
