Support us

The Lunigiana International Music Festival has two main missions: to provide young talented musicians with one of a kind opportunity to be inspired by today world-renowned music teachers and to act as point of reference in the cultural life in Lunigiana.

With your help, the festival will be able to expand the scope of its educational endeavors with private lessons, public masterclasses, language courses, concert tours in the region, “orchestra project”, and a competition.

The money raised will be spent entirely on the realization of the project with particular emphasis on:

  • Scholarships for the participants (each scholarship is starting from 200 Euro)
  • Media and recording of our concerts (3000 Euro)
  • The “Orchestra project”: financing musicians and renting the right location to host our musicians(Location: 2000 Euro, Musicians: 6000 Euro)
  • Workshops, Concerts and masterclasses by visiting artists (starting at 500 Euro)

This will happen because of your generosity and participation.

We look forward to welcoming you to our great new family!

Thank you!

Founders of the Lunigiana International Music Festival

Benhur attended twice the Festival on a full scholarship thanks to the generous support of our donors.
This is what he said about his donors:
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to you for helping me achieve my dream to be able to participate in a classical music festival, so that it can pave a way for me to pursue proper study and finally have a career in the art form I desired since I were a little kid. At first it seemed improbable that I would be able to go there until you and people like you courageously and generously donated for me. I just can’t tell how much your generosity has helped me and absolutely opened a path for me to connect to a wonderful teacher in a wonderful festival. (…) By helping me go to that festival, an avalanche of hopeful opportunities hopefully will come rumbling my way to, push me go further to make my dreams a reality.
