this session is part of the Medinea On Air programme and supported by the Erasmus + Programme and the Comune di Nuoro and the Fondazion di sardegna.


The Medinea session, is an open program to the finest young musicians and improvisers from the Mediterranean. The four 2022 Medinea Sessions of the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra (MYO) are each open to a dozen of young and talented musicians from the Mediterranean basin building their careers to become professional artists and who have an intense practice of musical improvisation, even of the composition. Each session is designed for a large diversity of musical aesthetics and Mediterranean expressions and hosts all styles of music using elements of improvisations (jazz, traditional music, early music, etc.). Fabrizio Cassol, composer, saxophonist, and jazzman, guides these sessions and proposes to experiment with techniques of collective composition, within an ensemble, with the aim of leading to the creation of a common musical production that also reveals individual singularities. This training offers a unique intercultural experience of the life of an ensemble in creation, in rehearsals, and on tour.
