THE ROLE OF FLORENTIA CONSORT
The Florentia Consort Organization is a Non-Profit Cultural Association founded in 2014, and based in Florence, Italy.
Our vision is to prepare the young musician to take on a transformative, challenging role as an artist in the 21st Century with new experiences on the international stage. This mission propelled the founders to launch the Renaissance in the XXI Century - Study Abroad Program for musicians in collaboration with the University of Colorado, Boulder, and held in Florence from 2012 to 2017. Florentia Consort is also committed to enriching the lives of the community of Florence, Italy, Tuscany, and regions throughout Europe with educational performances and experiences such as Children’s concerts, Workshops, and Master classes.
We create opportunities for young musicians to experience formative training and performances in an international setting.
