Please find below a small sample of letters, sent to us without solicitation by participants illustrating Orfeo’s impact on new generation of musicians.

This festival has been an invaluable experience to me.  My ears have been opened in many different ways in terms of listening to both myself and others.  The concerts have been incredible and easily my favorite part of the festival.  I cannot fully express my gratitude to all who made this possible.  My progress as a musician here has been exponential.

It always astounds me how hundred plus people from all over the world can come together for just over two weeks and leave feeling like they’ve always known one another.  The festival’s mission is “Making music together,” and the bonds formed through music are so strong as to render conversation nearly obsolete. Thank you for letting me and everyone else here share so much of ourselves with each other.  That’s worth the world to all of us.

For me the best part of attending Orfeo Music Festival was being given the chance to hear so much incredible music performed by such fabulous musicians.  Vipiteno is absolutely gorgeous and I will miss these moments!

I always enjoy coming here to Orfeo.  Each year is better than the last and I look forward to coming back.Thank you!

As a second year participant of the festival, I have grown tremendously as a musician and performer. Intensive lessons by Orfeo faculty were a gift from God!  I have been extremely fortunate to have this experience twice!  My stay here was phenomenal and location stunning.

*

The Orfeo music program was a fantastic experience and I am so grateful for the opportunity to participate.  I have learned so much and improved exponentially as a musician.

This has been a wonderful experience for me.  It feels possible to fit a year’s worth of learning, performing, and listening into only couple weeks (impossible at home, where other responsibilities get in the way) and the exchange of ideas, inspiration and new friendships are as good as the music!  Thank you.

The Orfeo Music Festival has been incredibly invaluable experience.  The whole environment here is extremely encouraging and constructive and the surroundings are absolutely spectacular.

This music festival was defined by the professors – every single one was not only talented, but genuinely cared about the students, very giving with their time, and always had a smile on their face, a compliment or a constructive critique on their lips.  I sincerely enjoyed getting to know them and appreciated very much the help and feedback they gave. Thank you for that.  I enjoyed myself and learned so much thanks to the other students and festival’s professors.  Vipiteno is BEAUTIFUL!
