A future of musical satisfaction

A future of musical satisfaction
There are no limits to future prospects. Music can also become something more than a moment of entertainment. From the "Banda" many instrumentalists have come out who have also had the opportunity to experience music professionally


Operational proposals

As part of its institutional purposes, the Musica Cittadina di Locarno (MCL) has carried out over the decades, starting from its foundation in 1808 and subsequently from its "refoundation" in 1910 and up to the 80s, _cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_an irreplaceable role for the dissemination and dissemination of music in the social and cultural fabric of the Municipality of Locarno and neighboring Municipalities.


Subsequently, due to or merit (for posterity the arduous sentence ed.!!) things have changed and today,  talking about traditions to the new generations, risks provoking, in many cases , pitying smiles.


However, the task of the institutions is not that of aligning themselves at all costs with what is, unfortunately, in a broad sense a downward leveling of the social and cultural concept.

Analyzing the phenomenon in its more specific aspects, we came to the decision to propose, on an experimental level,  of the activities

alternatives and in some respects complementary to those institutional goals mentioned at the beginning of the reflection.


  • Preparatory courses for children aged 5 to 8 years

  • Practical music laboratory within the elementary school (after-school with a bandistic focus)

  • Collaboration with other Bands of the Region (Minibanda made up of young people from the Bands of Ascona, Locarno and Losone)

  • Collaboration with other musical ensembles (preparation of some songs with the Jeans Group and participation in the RSI radio show "Tra la gente" and concerts.

  • Hands-on music workshop reserved for adults (musical and social experience)
