15 – 30 July 2022 – Bardonecchia (To)
Since 1995 the summer music camp in Bardonecchia has given students the opportunity to be taught by internationally famous musicians in a residential course offering masterclasses in piano, violin, cello and chamber music. Students in the courses also perform in public as the camp organises thirty concerts for the people of Bardonecchia.
Every year the camp’s 180 students (in 2021, despite the pandemic emergency, 153 students participated in compliance with the anti Covid security protocols) are given advanced music training thanks to the passion and expertise of the internationally renowned musicians who teach the 2022 summer courses: they include Roberto Plano, Enrico Pace, Benedetto Lupo, Pietro De Maria, Mariangela Vacatello, Gabriele Carcano, Claudio Voghera, Giovanni Doria Miglietta, Marina Scalafiotti, Daniela Carapelli (piano), Sonig Tchakerian, Ivan Rabaglia (violin), Enrico Bronzi, Giovanni Scaglione (cello), Trio Debussy (chamber music).
Most of the 2022 masterclasses will be held in the Palazzo delle Feste, the location of the Accademia office during the summer camp, while some lessons will be scheduled in the “Des Ambrois” secondary school in Bardonecchia.
Registration is now open. Applications can be sent until 12 June 2022.

Deadline for applications for masterclasses 12 June 2022 (with the “GARANZIA COVID” guarantee to hold certain places). If on 30/6/2022 the restrictions put in place by national and regional governments to contain the Covid pandemic make it impossible for the Accademia to hold the masterclasses of the Musica d’Estate summer camp as normal, application fees will be refunded. Please apply to enrol in the course as soon as possible using the forms you will find at the end of each page/course. This will allow us to have a precise idea of the number of participants and thus to organise the measures required to protect their health.
Every year, throughout July, students and lecturers from the courses perform in 30 concerts in Bardonecchia over a month-long programme, attracting more than 7,000 music lovers. Venues include the Palazzo delle Feste community centre, the Church Maria Ausiliatrice and the Church of San Ippolito, decorated with wonderful old wood carvings by the valley’s craftsmen.
The Musica d’Estate summer camp is organised by the Accademia di musica di Pinerolo with financing from the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities, the Regione Piemonte government, the Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo foundation, the City of Bardonecchia, Fondazione C.R.T foundation, and with the valuable contribution of Villaggio Campo Smith, Bardonecchia Booking and Harald’s. We have always to thank Piatino Pianoforti and Yamaha Musica Italia for their generosity in providing musical equipment.
