“A great location. A great time of year. A great group of people. IGE celebrates and dives into the spirit and energy of Art & Music in a way that encourages exploration, of the art and of the self and of the community. Sounds pretty awesome to me....I am in!”
““IGE combines the arts, inspiration and community into a unique, synergistic experience....Much like a concert in which enjoyment is immediate, but on reflection an experience that brings so much more...”

All that is missing is you!
Our Music and Art Immersions foster community through support of arts and education-based objectives. As an Immersion participant you become a Music and Art Patron, playing a vital role in the IGE community. Patrons are dancers, artists, musicians, music and art lovers, or nonprofit arts organizations donors.
Patrons value mutual artistic engagement and seek opportunities for collective encounter. Together with fellow patrons, ambassador ensembles and IGE staff, patrons create community as they explore, view art, travel, collaborate in artistic and musical exploration, shop and prepare food for cooperative meals.
Patrons participate as they wish in activities such as restaurant and potluck meals, cocktail parties, scheduled concerts and musical improvisations. Spontaneous jam sessions occur throughout Immersions with significant nightly multi-genre performances.
“The IGE Music and Art Immersion is so different from what usually goes on in Venice, and was conceived to shift the tenor of the Venetian atmosphere while contributing to its evolution.”
–Cico Casartelli, Italian cultural and musical journalist
IGE directly supports a range of Venetian and international nonprofit arts foundations, orchestras, educational institutions and music conservatories. Our benefit concert revenue, donations and grants fund cross-cultural musical exploration, international arts education and restoration of historic heritage sites of special cultural or physical significance. In addition and as compliment to direct funding, IGE Musical Ambassadors donate master classes in conservatories worldwide across a range of genres and styles.
Our Immersion Packages offer equal levels of incredible musical, travel and cultural opportunities. The only difference is whether you want a shared or private bath. Please note that airfare to Italy is not included.
