Call for proposals “New Languages for F.P Tosti”

Saint Louis College of Music is issuing a nationwide call for orchestra musicians for the following instruments: male or female voice, guitar, bass or double bass, piano, trumpet, alto sax and tenor sax, drums

The call for proposals is aimed at the realization of a project resulting from the collaboration of two institutions recognized by their respective ministries: the Istituto Nazionale Tostiano based in Ortona (CH) and the Saint Louis College of Music in Rome.

The project aims, through transcriptions, arrangements and performances, to offer audiences a different listening to some of the melodies composed by the famous musician Francesco Paolo Tosti. An album will also be produced and presented on December 17 at a prestigious concert in the city of Ortona.


The project

All participating musicians will receive a scholarship provided by the National Tostian Institute. The scholarships are offered by the Istituto Nazionale Tostiano, an institute of national importance under L.534/96, active worldwide.

Saint Louis will produce a CD with accompanying booklet containing performances of all the pieces for the occasion, and which will be presented at the Tosti Gala, to be held at the F.P. Tosti Theater in Ortona on December 17, 2023.

In addition, Saint Louis will organize a concert in Rome to present the CD in a hall or location of its choice.

Rehearsals will take place at the Saint Louis College of Music venues twice a week starting at 5:30 p.m. from mid-October until mid-November, and registration will take place thereafter (exact dates and times will be announced later).
