Cherry Notes
Music under the cherry trees.

In collaboration with Unione Musicale.
Artistic direction: Antonio Valentino

Among all art forms, music has the closest relationship with nature. Music is impalpable matter made of frequencies and timbres, of sound waves that disseminate in the air. Nature, on the other hand, has always been a source of inspiration for artists and composers. It is therefore an irresistible call to listen to classical music performed live on a meadow beneath the shade of cherry trees, surrounded by a breathtaking landscape.

Cherry Notes returns this Autumn with four concerts, unique listening experiences with great variety, in the splendid setting of Orsolina28.

Information & prices:
Concerts begin at 11:30 am (duration 50/60 minutes)

Concert Tickets: full price €10 | reduced (under 14) €6
