Arcadia Early Music Academy


La Serenissima

Arcadia Summer 2018 will focus on the music from Venice, around the figures of Andrea e Giovanni Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi, Antonio Vivaldi, Benedetto Marcello and many other composers who made the city of Venice famous in the world.

There will be a big “tutti” group, involving all the participants, making the main program of the course and presented to the public at the end of the week, as well as chamber music formations.
