As we all continue to battle the pandemic and spread of the coronavirus, the live music sector suffers epically, therefore we’re working diligently to prepare the 2021 edition that will be even richer and more significant than in the past.
With music performances cancelled throughout last here we felt the need for innovation, and we are very proud to share with you a new proposal that will join our much appreciated and recognized international band competition: “OPEN AIR”: a safe way to enjoy music.
In the suggestive squares of Riva del Garda, stages will be set up where the participating bands can perform their best repertoire in front of the many tourist and citizen of the town.
What better occasion for a band to offer the public its peculiarities?
A musical carousel that will further enrich the experiential background of the musicians participating in the competition, a unique opportunity for listener to enjoy music safely and comfortably.
Participant bands can count in Riva del Garda on a proven organization, which has been setting up the competition since 1991 and a jury composed of the most important musicians and composers on the international scene, a combination that in twenty editions of this competition has brought on the Flicorno d’Oro stage approx. 900 music groups, contributing to the renewal of the national and international band movement which in Riva del Garda writes one of the best pages of its history.
But Flicorno d’Oro is not just a competition! Many appointments complete the offer for the entire duration of the competition.
Do not miss the opening concert that every year is entrusted to a prestigious European band, as well as the engaging closing evening for the awards, all events that will be scheduled outdoors in compliance with recent health protocols.
The collaboration with Yamaha Music Europe will also continue, offering free maintenance seminars for wood and brass.
In short, new solutions, but the same passion. The registration deadline has also been postponed to 31 December to allow participating bands to make their decisions while always keeping an eye on the Covid-19 situation.
In addition, on this page you can find all the information relating to the Covid measures and the protocols put in place by Riva del Garda Fierecongressi that will allow us to continue to carry out our events in safety and in full respect of everyone’s health.
