As it has for the past 22 consecutive summers, the International Chamber Ensemble will once again treat Rome audiences to 19 unforgettable musical evenings in the courtyard of one of the city’s most splendid examples of Renaissance architecture. Located just a short walk from Piazza Navona, the architectural and acoustical excellence of the Courtyard of Saint Ivo alla Sapienza creates the perfect setting for a marvelous musical evening under the summer stars of Rome.
The repertory chosen for this year’s series of concerts offers a stimulating and uniquely varied array of immortal music; from Mozart to Tchaikovsky, from George Gershwin to Rogers and Hammerstein, from celebrated French and Italian songs to the best known cinema soundtracks of our time, all performed by the orchestra of the International Chamber Ensemble under the direction of Francesco Carotenuto and with several special guest artists.
