Upcoming Program: Summer 2021
From July 22 - 28, 2019 Nuova Musica hosted a week long pilot program for students, artists, and patrons of the arts in Gesualdo. This short-form gathering brought together students from Carnegie Mellon, Princeton, Yale, recent NYU grads, and international artists for an intense week of creative exploration, laying the groundwork for future years. Activities are suspended for 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but we look forward to planning a program for Summer 2021 when we hope we may once again travel and gather freely!
For students, the Nuova Musica program of study is shaped to individual goals, and may focus on either performance (song coaching and monologue study) or writing (music, lyric and bookwriting), or other topics of interest.
Professional artists may propose to pursue independent creative projects, with opportunities to develop and share work, and receive feedback.
Patrons will join with students and artists to enjoy excursions to experience local sights, cuisine and cultural activities. Other private tourist activities may be coordinated for an additional fee.
During Summer 2021, Nuova Musica plans to present its first full summer festival, with professional artists in residence in Gesualdo over a three week period. Exact program dates are still to be determined, and will be announced by January 2021. Summer programming will include a workshop production of a new musical, inspired by Giambattista Basile's Tale of Tales, presented in the historic Castello di Gesualdo. Additional programming will include other concert presentations of new work, as well as student performances. Please sign up for our email list to express interest, and we will follow up to let you know about application opportunities for students, artists in residence, as well as opportunities for patron attendance.
