Orchestra Papillon: founded in January 2005 with the aim of combining and reinforcing the varied teaching experiences of the musicians Simone Genuini, conductor and pianist, Roberto Nobilio, clarinetist and pianist, Valeria Bosso, violinist, Gabriella Pasini, violoncellist. The orchestral group joins more advanced students with children in their first months of study, and from an initial group of fifteen it has expanded to the present formation with seventy players and ten teachers, including the founders and guests. The orchestra does many benefit performances, including the annual concert on 8 November for ASM (Associazione Studio Malformazioni), dedicated to Margherita Nobilio, who lived only sixteen days due to a malformation of the heart. Past performances include the concert in 2011 at the Festival of Salzburg Cantus Salisburgensis, when the orchestra performed at the Mozarteum, the Mirabell Gardens and the Salzburg Cathedral. The teaching staff of the orchestra is composed of Valeria Bosso, Stefania Cassano, Roberto Nobilio, Gabriella Pasini.
