"Dear participants,
Thank you for your great performances, your motivation, your hard work and your sympathy! The entire Appassionata International Music Competition for Amateurs (2023) team had an unforgettable time with you. We could feel talent, love of music and  desire to do well. This is exactly what we seek to promote within this one-of-a-kind project and you have made it possible so thank you again. We hope that this event was also special for you, that it allowed you to express yourself and flourish and that it will remain a good memory.
As I said when the results were announced yesterday, above all our competition is there to share a musical moment together, improve, gain experience and meet new people."
