Barcolana, Mimì e Cocotte and Open Day

International Music School is pleased to invite you to two events coming up soon in the centre of Trieste, one of which shall take place during Barcolana and the other just the following weekend.


On the 9th October we will offer music over breakfast, in collaboration with Mimì e Cocotte, on the race day of Barcolona. This year you could have a view of the gulf from the rooftop of one of the best museums in Trieste to watch the regatta, with breakfast provided by the fantastic Mimì e Cocotte and music provided by IMS Ensemble; a brass quintet and programme tailored for your special Sunday morning breakfast on the top of Museo Revoltella. The quintet (of two trumpets, French horn, trombone and tuba) will perform a mixture of traditional Italian music, tango, and pop arrangements of music by The Beatles and others.

Barcolana is the largest sailing Regatta in the world; it draws around 25,000 sailors and around 250,000 spectators. During the event of Barcolona, which is just over a week (this year from 30th September to the 9th October), there is much to see and do any so we are proud to be a part of this legendary event this year.

See the Facebook event page for more information – please note that places must be booked in advance and spaces for this special occasion are limited, so hurry!

Open Day

Then, on the 15th October from 1600 until 1900 we shall host an Open Day at our school in Piazza Benco, 4, Trieste 34122. On the day we shall present all of the instruments for which we shall offer courses, and prospective students, children and adults alike, will have the opportunity to see, touch and hear all of the instruments. The teachers will be delighted to talk about their instrument and what students can expect to learn at their level, and how the teacher will help them progress to the next level and beyond.
