WHAT IS THE TUSCANY PROJECT? "
Over twenty years ago, four friends combined their skills as musicians, singers, actors and teachers to create an annual artistic retreat. Their dream was to create an environment where individuals could experience the power of the human voice as a celebration of the human spirit. This dream came out of their common belief that music, and particularly singing supported by a community of like-minded Individuals inspires and transforms lives. They imagined a place where once a year individuals from every walk of life, of any age and musical experience level, could step out of their daily life and into a paradise where artistic freedom and musical exploration are encouraged and nurtured.
That dream became The Tuscany Project.
At the core of our work are a number of principles:
- The power of breath.
- The connection between voice, body and soul.
- Freeing the body and voice.
- The belief that everyone is capable of singing.
- The encouragement to take risks.
- Balancing being in the spotlight with being lit from within.
Participants come together in a supportive environment where the group and the individual's process are respected. The work we do is not about competition; it is about celebrating each participant's own unique voice in a vibrant, international community of singers and teachers.
Each year we have the joy meeting and working with people of all ages, nationalities and skill levels. The only prerequisites are an open mind, a desire to sing, and the courage to take risks. Make yourself and your voice a priority and join us!
"The Tuscany Project is important, not just for singing, but for art in general. It reminds us that we live in a diverse community, each with our own unique talents that are essential to its growth. We thrive together." Jesi Mullins
