The unique aspect about OVA is that we can offer you the opportunity to perform for the most historically renowned operatic associations and organizations in Italy (Casa di Riposo Per Musicisti: Fondazione Verdi, (Milano), Comitato Renata Tebaldi (Busseto), Fondazione Giacomo Puccini, and the Amici di Luigi Illica in Castel’Arquato, Italy. 2019 honoured the memory of Signora Simonetta Puccini (Torre del Lago) who is deeply missed friend and collaborator with the Academy, and concerts in the historic Casa Barezzi, where Verdi first honed his craft in the Verdi city of Busseto. At the end of each week, the materials studied are presented in and out of town, in concerts to benefit one of these very important organizations. Transportation to and from out-of-town centres will be accommodated as well as a one night-stay for two of the events.
