All programmed events have the main objective to represent an innovative tool for the dissemination of the quality classical music on the territory of Verona and the Veneto Region, adding to the musical offering other meaningful aspects that characterize it, such as tourism and the conservation of the numerous artistic, cultural and environmental resources which are abundant in this Italian area.
To assist those aspects of the strong collaboration with public and private entities by which Discanto collaborates regularly, including the towns of Cerea, Sanguinetto, Monteforte d'Alpone, Peschiera del Garda and Lazise and the Seghetti Institute of Verona, as well as musical associations, cultural and sporting activities, institutes, schools of music and dance and so on.
The high artistic quality of the organized exhibitions is based on a careful selection of the performers, which takes place in the most prestigious international music competitions, including the International Prize of Music "Gaetano Zinetti", offering to promising young musicians the opportunities to be known on prestigious stages, by supporting them to entry into the whole world concerts.
Cultural events organized until now have received great success with the audiences and critics, thanks to the vast mailing list that allows Discanto to reach a diverse audience, composed of music and culture enthusiasts, interested in the activities proposed.
