Clazz, a new music festival at the intersection of classical and jazz idioms, offers a one-of-a-kind experience.
Set in the historic center of Arcidosso, Italy, and situated in the heart of Tuscany, Clazz International Music Festival features a fully integrated musical journey for attendees.
While some musicians will come to focus on their classical repertoire, others will be more inclined to harness their improvisational abilities.
Clazz allows students the freedom to choose their own educational path.
At Clazz, we are focused on learning how to be the best musician we can be, in an inspiring and nurturing environment, regardless of genre.
Complete with two day trips to Siena, and the beach in Porto Santo Stefano, delicious local cuisine of the region, a first-rate concert series, and a faculty of highly acclaimed international artists, Clazz guarantees a very special musical experience, helping to foster significant and meaningful new connections to last a life time.

Arcidosso is a medieval village with a marvelous history dating back to the 9th century. It’s located in the South of Italy’s famous Tuscan region near Mount Amiata and Grosseto, centrally positioned between Rome and Florence. Siena and Pisa are both within a few hours drive as well, and less than an hour away, one can visit some of the world’s best wineries, or go swimming at the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean Sea.
