Chamber music festival
13 years doing magic
23/7 – 01/8
What is it?
A festival that was born in 2009 and since then has become a benchmark chamber music festival in the Valencia Community and in Spain. A festival that, growing every year, has managed to combine quality and teaching in a local environment by the hand of its director Joan Enric Lluna and a great team of professionals.
As a result of the birth of this great, the chamber music association is formed, which to date will support the management and motivation of this festival.
The initial Godella chamber music events were so well received that in 2010 we decided to establish a cultural association, led by the Festival’s founder Joan Enric Lluna, with the aim of providing support and continuity for Godella’s chamber music events. This took the form of the AAMCG (the Association of Friends of Godella Chamber Music), comprising music lovers, musicians and members with experience in music management and education. The Association’s main focus is staging the annual “Chamber Music Residencies” festival, a participative festival that offers a first class series of musical performances and events alongside an education programme aimed at talented young musicians, providing them with the opportunity to get to know and learn from established musicians. The AAMCG is responsible for the festival programme, as well as various activities at other times of the year. It coordinates the chamber music residencies, manages funding with the input of public institutions, and promotes participation by Friends and other supporters.
Musicians at the highest level
Our Chamber Music Festival was born with the idea of creating for a few summer days a group of musicians of the highest international level, and with the ambition that the excellence of their performances would reach the most hidden corner of society. The dream has always been to make of chamber music a profound life experience that is accessible to both music lovers and people who have never been to a concert. We want to show that chamber music is far from being “elitist” in the sense of exclusivity of a few people, but rather a cultural asset that benefits everyone.
To achieve this, we bring artists as close as possible to people in the form of open rehearsals, meetings with the public, dinners with artists, round tables, and the participative choir, where everyone who wants to sing can do it with us, a quite enriching experience for everybody.
Young Talents form an essential part of the Festival, forming a parallel festival themselves, rehearsing with great teachers and receiving their advice.
We have gone through times of economic difficulties, but never such an exceptional time as this health-economic crisis. Still, we are determined to offer and share this wonder that is Chamber Music with anyone that wants to join us.
