The Comitato AMUR was born in Italy in May 2020 from the desire to bring together some of the most important Italian chamber music institutions into a single body, with the aim of promoting common activities and objectives.
Preceded by the five-year experience of Rete AMUR – Associazioni MUsicali in Rete (Network of Music Associations), the committee was formed as a propulsive and proactive force, for a concrete and national response to cultural life, also aiming at participating in international networks.
The value of creating a system, which has always united the institutions involved, is transformed into a common commitment: aware of their moral responsibility and cultural heritage, that needs to be handed down to the new generations, the institutions of classical music intend to stimulate further applications and as many virtuous unions in Italy and abroad, and at the same time relaunch the classical music concert activity in Italy.
The historical concert organizations, from Trieste to Palermo, gather in this website with the aim of enhancing all the concert programming of the members of the Comitato Amur and promoting common projects such as the circulation of young professional musicians and the organization of tours for Italian artists, international events, conferences, cultural trips, events that enrich the cultural life of the country.
The Committee pays particular attention to young audiences by committing itself to planning open rehearsals and special projects aimed at schools.
