The Filarmonica is resuming work in the open air – in some of the most spectacular courtyards of Milano.

The musicians will give 24 concerts in small groups, starting June 26.

    I applaud their creativity in finding suitable and beautiful venues. However, I believe the video made to advertise the concert series made more use of tuning cacophony than is advised.

  • E says:

    The excitement of hearing orchestra musicians tuning up again…!

  • fflambeau says:

    Smart to stay outdoors, to social distance, play in small groups etc. Remember that Italy has been hit particularly hard by covid.

  • Ron Swanson says:

    The Marriage of Figaro would work well in those locations.
