FOG – The Florence Youth Festival

13/09/16 Ocarina listens to Uncategorized

Ocarina loves music, specially when children are protagonists. This is why we love so much the Florence Youth Festival that was born in Florence in 1999 by the Academy San Felice Music School. Florence Youth Festival, FOG, is a music festival born with the intent to promote music and give to young musicians from around the world the opportunity to live a unique musical experience in Florence and Tuscany. The main venue of the festival is Loggia dei Lanzi in Piazza della Signoria, Florence, but many are the amazing places in which the Festival lives: Lucca, Prato, San Gimignano, Montecatini Terme, Perugia and Assisi. The festival reaches this year the 18th edition and involves 11 non-professional youth orchestras from all over the world. Since its inception and more and more every year the FOG is growing in terms of participation of both youth orchestras and public.

Each participating Orchestra has the opportunity to perform in a small tour in these beautiful cities. The average age of the musicians is from 12 to 18 years old. All the partecipants have the possibility to bring their passion for music in wonderful venues, real open-air museums. In addition to program and to promote the festival which takes place in July, FOG also organizes concert tour around Italy to promote the music exchange within the Italian territory. During festival the music really speaks a single language. Every night, as music creates socializing, the magic turns on. The concerts are all free and open access. We recommend you not to loose it!

The orchestras participating this year are:

NUS Symphony Orchestra (Singapore, 57 musicisti)

Greater Bridgeport Youth Orchestra (USA, 50 musicisti)

Musikgymnasiumsochester Graz (Austria, 38 musicisti)
