Our Mission

The mission of Zephyr International Chamber Music Festival is to provide outstanding young musicians with an intense and genuine professional chamber music experience.

The festival is focused on techniques of collaboration and communication, features strong faculty support and takes place in the culturally and physically inspiring Alpine environment of northwestern Italy.

Our Vision

The Zephyr festival is designed to give a small, select group of highly talented participants exposure to its internationally respected artist faculty, with generous opportunities to rehearse, coach and perform in public venues over a three-week period.

In this fertile environment participants are supported to attain new standards of excellence, insights into music, techniques of performance and a deep appreciation of the regional Italian culture.
