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 will perform alongside internationally-acclaimed conductors and the innovative POP Orchestra.

The Festival begins with a Grand Opening Concert, featuring wonderful soloists and an ensemble of the POP Orchestra. A unique and exciting chamber music concert is then presented to the audience every day, culminating with another performance by the Orchestra in a Grand Closing Gala, all with the aim of strengthening the community and sensitizing the youngest generation to the real power of classical music.

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.

Audiences around the world can experience the magic of the Oropa Music Festival through special concert tours by the Festival’s global ambassador – our unique Peace Orchestra Project.

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.
