ClarinetFest® 2013 will be held in Assisi, Italy, with Piero Vincenti serving as Program Director. Please check later for more information!
Here is a note from Pierro Vincenti about the ClarinetFest 2013 in Assisi:
ClarinetFest® 2013 is inspired by the unique atmosphere of Assisi, the
city of San Francesco (St. Francis), with his universal message of brotherhood
and peace. The official logo, created by Gioele Mazzei, is a perfect expression of this message. It contains two symbols: the Basilica of San Francesco and the clarinet with the Italian flag colors. ClarinetFest® 2013 will be an unforgettable experience for everyone. Approximately 200 proposals were submitted. My friend and artistic collaborator Antonio Fraioli and I have worked hard to review all these performance and lecture proposals. In addition to the exciting clarinet–related vendor product exhibitions, we look forward to featuring typical products of our region: wine, cheese, norcineria, honey, olive oil, hand crafts, ceramics and more... The four evening concerts in the Lyrick
Theater will be a tribute to different languages in which the clarinet is the protagonist: soloist with Wind Orchestra, soloist with Symphonic Orchestra, Jazz and Popular music (Klezmer, Italian dance music, etc.). On July 27, we would like to break the Guinness World Record for the largest Clarinet Choir: 350 clarinet players in Assisi’s historic center. On July 28, we will have two fantastic clarinet choir performances formed by university professors from the United States as well as a Clarinet Choir formed by professors of the Italian Conservatory. This concert will culminate with a performance in which I will conduct works that feature these choirs combined into one grande choir. There will be an opportunity to visit artistic old cities in our region of Umbria,
like Perugia, Spoleto, Gubbio and wonderful places like Cascate delle Marmore,
Trasimeno Lake, etc..... Our website will offer tour packages organized for you.
On the Accademia Italiana del Clarinetto website later this spring, you will find a more complete listing of the performers, pedagogues and lecturers at
2013, along with the registration form for the conference. More detailed information will also be available in future issues of The Clarinet! ClarinetFest® t-shirts (black with the official logo) will be made available
for pre-purchase (€15) on the registration form.
I look forward to welcoming you in Assisi (July 24–28, 2013) with warm Italian
The next symposium of the Deutsche Klarinettengesellschaft (German Clarinet Society) will take place in Rostock, Germany from 1-3 October 2014.
