Festival of the Gulf and Competition, ITALY
The "Festival of the Gulf" is an International Summer Music Program.The Festival is a ten day program of instruction and performance with faculty from the Milan Conservatory and other international professional artists. It is open to musicians of all ages and all levels of musical accomplishment.
The program takes place at the Fondazione Passarelli located in San Marco di Castellabate (SA), a small fishing town on the Mediterranean about two hours south of Naples, Italy. The Fondazione Pasarelli offers a beautiful setting for the program, with a beautifully tended garden campus complete with swimming pool and tennis courts, and it is only a ten minute walk to the local beaches. There are numerous practice rooms and outdoor areas for play. Entrance to the Fondazione is reserved exclusively to program participants and their families during the Festival. There will be a limited amount of time for tourism at the participants' discretion and expense. Among the accessible attractions are the Greek ruins of Paestum, the island of Capri, and Mount Vesuvius and the ruins of Pompei, as well as the nearby medieval fortress town of Castellabate and the resort town of Santa Maria de Castellabate.

Thou temptest me sore.
However, I face a dearth of vacation days, happy cabbage, oil of palm, and moola. Looks like fun. When you plan one of these in Hutto, TX, look me up. I may be able to scrape up a spare room. :-)
.. I've emailed ;) ...
hi Jo... I'm guessing you are referring to my topic two years ago?
Soft, good Sir. Mayhap the fates will one day remove me to thy great State!
Elise, I don't know what you were up to 2 years ago LOL
I was just showing 'excitement' at your reply in this thread, that you've 'emailed' meaning: WOW you lucky girl...having the money to go to this thing, I so much envy you!!! :) LOL
Mayhap the fates will one day remove me to thy great State!
If so, get in touch me with me. Maybe we can neighbor.
Jo: here it is (if I can get this code working...
If you look at the page source you can see the secret hidden text of Elise's second last message!
Eric - wow, I've never done that before! shame I can't edit it in the viewer... I think there is one space missing
But back to the theme here - anyone else interested in joining us? I'm serious and it would be wonderful to meet other v.commies :)
I'm not allowed to leave the country as I've only recently escaped from Broadmoor ...
Peter, that doesn't make sense. If you are on the lam there would hardly be 'rules'. Besides, I can pick you up in my jet...
I'm allergic to jets ... (Whats a lam?)
'on the lam' means to be 'a fugitive from the law' More used in the US - but before you react to us 'slang' - Mencken traced it back to Shakespeareian times.
Hi again. I recently received a couple of private inquiries, so I thought I'd bring this thread to attention again and say that it's still not too late...
Hi folks! Thought I'd mention that the deadline to apply is rapidly approaching!
Hello all! I've been invited to do this again. This year it will be from August 17-26. If interested, let me know, and we'll get into some details.
Did they give any thought about adult participants this year?
I hear you, Elise - but you'd have to talk to Kalin, the director about that. I hope so.
So "all ages", I take it, means "below a certain age"? ;-)
[Lydia - I went through this last year, kinda hoped that they would have established a policy by now...]
It is best to contact the director, Kalin Ivanov - firstname.lastname@example.org, for details, but mention that I had recommended you.
