And where, above all, the exclusive vitality of a very locally attended event and not only, which for its fifteenth birthday has prepared a big party.
In the sign of joy, of course.

Fifteen is also the average age of the young people who attend and have attended the activities over the years: a moment of life in which all the potential of a young person is open, in which the exchange with peers and trainers is of particular significance, when to recall all energies and talents is not only a possibility but a duty for those who believe in education as an immeasurable wealth.

Gioie Musicali is a Festival born in 2005 in Asolo (TV), and represents a meeting point for Italian, European and even non-European youth music companies in one of the most beautiful historic villages in Italy and involves over 100 children and young people every year in musical activities with 2 residency orchestras and theater workshops, improvisation and musical creativity, sound experiences for the very young, ranging from classical music to jazz, pop, rock and traditional genres with a carefully chosen team of trainers.
Gioie Musicali is music as joy, emotion, participation, training, communication. It is the acquisition of transversal skills also through non-formal methods. But it is also a jewel of a territory that invites you to discover its beauty, to perceive its positivity: a common heritage born in a treasure trove of cultural, landscape and artistic heritage, which in turn become a formative vehicle, of relationships, of meetings open to all young people, beyond the personal data.

The fifteenth edition of Gioie Musicali proposes, in short, a wide-ranging "Butterfly effect", to share the beauty of what Madama Butterfly calls "small humble and silent things": things that, starting from the enchanting village among the Treviso hills, have brought music and musicians all over the world helping to make it a better place. And that always attracted artists and enthusiasts from all over the world to Asolo. As only special places can do.

Meetings and in-depth lessons with great musicians on the international scene, but at a reduced cost precisely because growth and education can be more accessible; this is also the commitment of the Musikdrama association that in the village of Asolo brings great professionals such as violinist Madeleine Carruzzo (masterclass from 5 to 9 July), the first woman to enter the ranks of the Berliner Philharmoniker, or the soloist cellist Miriam Prandi ( 7-10 July), the violist Georgy Kovalev (6-9 July) winner of the Bashmet International Competition and musician of the orchestra of Gidon Kremer and other major international orchestras.
Elisabetta Battaglia, soprano who has walked the stages of important opera houses from the Scala to the Massimo of Palermo, will hold her masterclass from 2 to 20 July under the guidance of the important Muti and Gavazzeni sticks.
The masterclasses are aimed at qualified and non-qualified musicians, with skills at least at level C of the pre-academic course; they are organized with lectures for individuals and for chamber groups, with the possibility of participation as actual students or auditors. The candidates will be selected by analyzing a video that they must send to musikdrama@rejouissance.it.
