We have a very exciting workshop coming up. We have invited Roberto Fantinel to coach some young local string musician students. This is an incredible opportunity for them with this renowned Italian conductor, he has an amazing bio, some of which we have shared below.

While attended many advanced courses on chamber music and conducting with artists like G. Guglielmo, S. Pagliani, Leon Spirer, Alexander Janiczek, Umberto Benedetti Michelangeli and Bruno Mezzena, he attended the classes organized by “I pomeriggi milanesi” orchestra, which were held by the conductors M° Gilberto Serembe and M° Aldo Ceccato.
Award winning Roberto is the main representative and the conductor of the “SiO” orchestra since 2011, the “SiO” orchestra, is made up of young musicians from 11 to 19, this organisation developed from a project called “Suono in Orchestra” which was created into the middle school “Barozzi“ in San Fior which allowed young members of the orchestra take part of important events such as a concert at Teatro Sistina in Rome for the semester of the Italian presidency among the European Community; a concert at the opening of the EXPO in Milan of 2015; the participation at the tv programme TU SI QUE VALES, which got more than 200.000 views on Facebook; a concert at the Senate of the Italian Republic in front of the President and live on RAI1 in 2016.
