After a forty-year absence and to celebrate one hundred years since the birth of Guido Cantelli, the Conducting Competition that was created in his memory comes to life again and takes on a strong international connotation while focusing on the younger generations. The competition has its natural home in the Teatro Coccia of Novara. Registrations for the Competition will open from 1 March to 30 April 2020 and candidates will undergo a preselection based on their CVs and video recordings. From 9 to 12 September the finalists will fulfill the competition’s assignments from the podium of the Orchestra del Teatro Regio in Turin, and will be examined by a jury made of internationally renowned artists and cultural personalities. The finals will take place in Novara, hometown of Guido Cantelli, on 13 September.
