Fondazione Antiqua Vox®

Antiqua Vox® promotes Baroque music and the pipe organ amongst music lovers of all ages,
with particular attention to the new generations, so that the sounds of the past may find new life in the present.

Behind the sounds of Baroque music and ancient instruments such as the pipe organ lies, in fact, an entire, fascinating and little-known world, which Antiqua Vox® wishes to bring closer to the general public and to the new generations.

The March of Treviso is a land rich in organs and other ancient instruments, and was therefore the perfect place for Antiqua Vox® to be born. Antiqua Vox® is a private non-profit foundation started by Claudio De Nardo, a passionate entrepreneur who wholeheartedly promotes the knowledge of the early and baroque music. Antiqua Vox® aims at enhancing the pipe organ, a rich and fascinating instrument which is still mostly unknown or little appreciated by many, and the role of the organist, as well as organising concerts in churches, theatres and venetian villas, promoting instrumental music and young musicians, and restoring historical instruments. Among different activities, Antiqua Vox® with a passion collaborates with many internationally renowned musicians.

The association’s commitments are as numerous as the many events which Antiqua Vox® presents all throughout the year in order to promote early music. Aperitivi in Musica and Baroque Experience® are two examples of instrumental music festivals, whilst Pagine d’Organo®Organi Estate® and Parliamo d’Organi® are specifically dedicated to organ music.

In addition to these, as divulgation has always gone hand in hand with education, Baroquip®, Laboratorio Giovanile Barocco gives Conservatory students the opportunity to be introduced to Baroque music and experience playing in an orchestra, whilst the Masterclass offers them a chance to further deepen one’s knowledge on the subject. Finally, the Progetto Scuola, which is designed for primary and secondary schools, introduces even the youngest pupils to the wonders of the pipe organ: inasmuch as certain sounds and certain emotions know no age.
