The first international music center for string instruments

The Stauffer Center for Strings is the first international music center for higher education, research, composition, production, management and innovation, entirely dedicated to string instruments.

Established in 2021 in Cremona in Palazzo Stauffer, an iconic historic building that has been restored and converted into a multifunctional campus, the Center is home to the Stauffer Academy and Stauffer Labs, creative and innovation departments.

A new artistic vision



The academy's Faculty brings together highly recognized Italian and international artists with chamber groups and specialized ensembles, all covering a range of styles, from baroque to contemporary music.
