Oropa Music Festival

a humanitarian project for a new world

Founded by young concert pianist and visionary Federico Gad Crema, the Oropa Music Festival is a week-long festival at the foothills of one of the most beautiful valleys in Europe, where world-renowned soloists perform alongside internationally-acclaimed conductors with the innovative POP Orchestra, and in new chamber music ensembles.

The atmosphere is one of total equality and inclusivity: the music serves as a bridge between any and all of our differences, a language through which we can all listen and understand.

A stunning location, a magical ambience, and beautiful, soul-cleansing music: a humanitarian project for a new world.

Peace Orchestra Project

who says classical music isn't POP?

Innovative, inspirational, and a catalyst for change in the world of music and in our society, the Peace Orchestra Project is an inclusive program based on the core values of social and religious integration, using classical music as a vehicle for human development.

Founded by young concert pianist and visionary Federico Gad Crema, the main goal of this project is to give a renewed purpose to the symphonic orchestra and to use it as a platform for social transformation, peace, and integration in our society, through the power of music.

The humanitarian project Neojiba from Brazil and the prestigious Orchestra Giovanile Italiana are the official partner organizations of the 2023 edition.

Guest Faculty

A world-class Faculty in Residence, made of mentors and principal players from some of the most important and prestigious orchestras, will guide the young talented musicians of the Peace Orchestra Project.
