There is no application fee. There is no participation fee for instrumentalists, but we do have a housing cost (e.g. single room, daily breakfast and lunch, daily cleaning of room, weekly laundry service). The housing cost for orchestra members (including all of the above) is set at a discounted $500 for the 6-week period.
There is also an $800 (US$) security deposit that must be paid to secure your position on the MOSF roster that will be reimbursed fully at the end of the program. This deposit ensures the commitment of the instrumentalist to the festival for the entirety of the program.
Once you are accepted into the program, you must pay the aforementioned deposits (Total $1300 US), effectively accepting your invitation to be part of the program.
Participation includes your instruction as part of the orchestra, all performances, transportation (not airfare), tourism, recreational activities, housing as previously described, and participation in our Italian language courses.
