Inspired by our surroundings in the medieval town of Sarteano, Summer Music in Tuscany has attracted vocalists and instrumentalists from around the world for the last five years to enjoy an authentic Italian experience.

Our Mission

Surrounded by Italian culture, we aim to renew our study and performance with a cross-disciplinary approach, examining the shared elements of making beautiful music driven by the engine of our breath, the intention of our minds, and the passion of our hearts.


The Program: June 29, 2020 - July 13, 2020

  • You will enjoy private and group instruction with master teaching-artists and coaches

  • The program is small (usually under 25 participants) in order to create a tailor-made, supportive experience for each musician.

  • Multiple opportunities for every musician to participate in solo, quartet, quintet or large ensemble public performances.

  • Our home venue is a breathtaking 18th century ovoid theatre with 45 boxes: Teatro Communale degli Arrischianti - our culminating final concert will take place there on July 11, 2020.

  • Classes on body awareness, mediation and breath

  • View a Sample Daily Schedule

  • You will sample the local cuisine in world class restaurants - and don’t forget your daily gelato for dessert

  • Cultural enrichment activities including exploring a thousand-year-old castle, visiting Siena during the Palio season, going inside an ancient Etruscan tomb, conversational Italian language classes, and more.

  • Reside in an Italian guesthouse that includes breakfast, free WIFI, and air-conditioning: La Gustea
