We operate using a collaboration-based model and we encourage the artistic community, including our own artists, to adopt this model.

Mezzo-Soprano Kayla Faccilongo (picture on the left) in regards to her visit said:
"Such an honor to represent Moveo International Performance Program at the Italian Consulate this morning. @ianjoyal and I attended a press conference for an artistic festival called Infiorata di Noto (The Flower Festival of Noto). We learned more about the culture of the gorgeous city where we will be singing in June and about the beautiful process that Sicilian artists go through in May to create colorful works of art on the streets of Noto using over 400,000 flower petals.
Being a guest at this conference was so inspiring because of the emphasis on international bonds between the Sicilian region and America. Although our program will take place after the festival, being exposed to the art and community of Noto today made me all the more passionate about creating art there in return.
While art is certainly an expression of the individual, it is also a chance to take a glimpse at the world through the eyes of others and feel united in the human experiences we all share.
This is one of my favorite things about being a singer and why I am so excited and grateful to be participating in the Moveo International Program this year. Collaborating and making music with talented artists from my own community and from all over the world is such an invaluable opportunity and I simply cannot wait."
