Southbank Sinfonia | Anghiari

Anghiari Festival

Saturday 18 – Friday 24 July 2015

This summer, join us for an unforgettable experience in the exquisite Tuscan hill-town of Anghiari.

Every July, Southbank Sinfonia – comprising some of the world’s most outstanding young musicians – makes its home at the Anghiari Festival in Tuscany. Each day, orchestral, choral and chamber music abounds from every piazza, church and cloister.

The festival is renowned for its friendly informality, spectacular setting away from the tourist trail and the chance to enjoy a great range of classical music up close every day.

With something to suit every musical taste, and taking in the historic setting of both Anghiari and its surrounding towns and villages, the Anghiari Festival is truly one of the highlights of the Southbank Sinfonia year.

In 2015 the orchestra will be joined in Anghiari by the world famous Allegri Quartet, plus choral music from the ever popular Vox Musica and members of the UK Parliament Choir. The festival concludes with its biggest ever concert – an unmissable performance of an Italian masterpiece: Verdi’s Requiem in Piazza Baldaccio.

Complementing this is a host of special events exclusively for Southbank Sinfonia supporters. Why not join us for a private recital at a nearby castle or a reception in the ‘Garden Bar’ overlooking the Tiber Valley?
