Alba Music Festivals “Sister Site”

“The Alba Music Festival and the Chesapeake Orchestra Board has recently committed itself to become the new partner to the Alba Music Festival in the Piemonte region of Northern Italy. The festival itself attracts more than 10,000 people yearly and has been called “the little Spoleto of Piemonte” (la Repubblica) – replacing that which SMCM has found it necessary to discontinue.

The partnership between Southern Maryland and Northern Italy predates the founding of the River Concert Series and the two festivals have grown side-by-side over the past 15 years. There is a deep understanding by the Chesapeake Orchestra board that this partnership has been the bedrock to the extraordinary musical programming and solo performances that mark both festivals — a culturally significant exchange for both regions.

For the 700+ students who have participated to date from St Mary’s and from across the U.S., many experienced their first travel abroad by participating at the Alba Festival. All experienced the rarified world of musical performance on the world stage.” – An open letter from Artistic Director of the C. O.  and co-director of the music festival, Jeff Silberschlag.

I wanted to bring to your attention that the festival also now has a NEW WEBSITE for all music students around the world to go to for more information and to fill out the application for participation.
