The Stauffer Center for Strings

International Music Centre

The Stauffer Center for Strings is the world’s first international music centre entirely dedicated to the higher education of strings, encompassing research, composition, production, management and innovation.

Opening in October 2021, the Center’s headquarters will be in the heart of Cremona, at Palazzo Stauffer (previously Palazzo Stradiotti). Standing as an iconic, seventeenth-century building, it has undergone major restoration to become a high-tech, sustainable and entirely plastic-free multifunctional campus, enriched by an exclusive interior design project by the iconic Italian company Pininfarina. The Center provides a physical space for The Stauffer Academy, created 35 years ago, and the Stauffer Foundation, established 50 years ago.

The Stauffer Center is one of the most advanced and innovative platforms for artistic cooperation at a global level, and a dynamic and sustainable hub dedicated to supporting the artistic and professional growth of new generations of musicians. It is also an ideal meeting and sharing space for artists, teachers and students, where they can express their talent and creativity in full respect of cultural and gender diversity.

WildKat is delighted to be managing the international PR for the new Stauffer Center for Strings in Cremona.
