MUSICFOR Philosophy


More than 800 musicians and professional experts in various areas work together for a common purpose. As an international organization that promotes musical activities through its locations all over the world, the focus of Musicfor includes concerts, conferences and festivals. It produces recordings and publications, focuses on educational outreach and conducts research activities.

Musicfor International headquarter is in Switzerland (Versoix), with branches in Italy (Rome and Turin), UK (London), France (Sallanches) and America (South Florida).

Musicfor musicians make a yearly volunteer commitment to support certain aspects of the organization’s mission. Leveraging this volunteer assistance helps grow the organization’s presence and its involvement in community. 

Musicfor America is honored to carry out the Musicfor International mission and vision from our headquarters in South Florida. By enriching our spirit through Art we can transform individual lives. Transformed lives enrich our communities.  This idea runs throughout all of the Musicfor activities!
