International ilSUONO Contemporary Music Week

                                                     An  Annual  Summer  Composition  Academy  in  Città  di  Castello,  Italy

Since 2016, Theocharis leads the artistic direction of the annual summer composition academy ilSUONO Contemporary Music Week,

an initiative that was founded in collaboration with Italian saxophonist Michele Bianchini and the ensemble Suono Giallo.

The mission of ilSUONO is to provide young emerging composers unique oppor­tunities for research, artistic challeng­e, and experimentation.

In the ideal environment of Sansepolcro, we created a setti­ng to encour­age and inspire. In this environment, a select pool of you­ng artists, spanni­ng over diverse cultures and aesthetic orient­ations, come together to collaborate cl­osely with highly skilled pr­ofessional instrumen­talists and renowned composers from prestigious academic institutions.­

Important figures of the composition field have been invited for residency at ilSUONO, such as

Chaya Czernowin, Pierluigi Billone, Franck Bedrossian, Ann Cleare, Edmund Campion, Clara Iannota,

Rand Steiger, Georgia Spiropoulos, Yan Maresz, Francesco Filidei, Nicolas Tzortzis, Simone Movio

The 21', 22', and 23' editions of ilSUONO were proud to be funded by the esteemed Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.


Acclaimed as "an original format of great success" (Corriere dell'Umbria), the program has built an international reputation and has remained consistent and innovative in its commitment to the future of music. The founding princ­iples that govern this annual project are

de­dication, passion, merit, and the desire to explore the endless pote­ntial of the musical sphere.
