The idea

To organize a chamber music festival in the highest level, meeting in three different cities of Uruguay outstanding uruguayan musicians (living in and outside the country) together with experienced foreigner musicians.

The Mision

This ambitious artistic project happens as an broad interchange space among musicians directed to the audiences, arriving to different cities and stages. It has the goal to establish itself year after year as an event of very high standards in the region due to the skills of its musicians as well as the professionalism of the organization and programming process.

Other initiatives related to the project

One of the initiatives involved to this project is to offer a space to national authors, commissioning every year one composition to a uruguayan composer, in order to premiere it in the Festival. It is also important to emphasize the academic mission of this event, which will allow music students from Uruguay and other countries of the region to attend to master classes with the guest artists. It is also significant to mention that all the activities of the festival (rehearsals, concerts, master classes) will be recorded, so this material can be reachable anytime for multiple uses.
