Cremona International Music Academy USA (Online Edition)
String Quartet and Chamber Music Masterclass

July 11 – 28, 2021


Teacher: Simone Gramaglia

While the Covid pandemic still makes it impossible for all of us to travel to Cremona, the Academy has developed a unique Online Program. In partnership with our wonderful Italian colleagues and friends, we have incorporated many components of the traditional Cremona program into this year’s program. With the goal of preserving as much of the authentic “Cremonese” experience as possible, many exciting events were added. The program will encompass private lessons, masterclasses, small ensemble and chamber music classes, interactive workshops, panel discussions, virtual tours, student recitals and Distinguished Faculty Concert Series. The 10th Cremona Competition for Strings and Piano will take place in a live recorded format.
Preserving the spirit of the Academy, we invite all participants to join us in special live-streaming tours of the world-famous Cremona Museo del Violino, Consorzio Liutai “Antonio Stradivari”, and into the workshops of the famous luthiers of Cremona – providing a unique experience to observe, ask questions, and learn secrets of the art of instrument making and repair.
