Southbank Sinfonia | Anghiari

Anghiari Festival

Saturday 23 – Friday 29 July 2016

Every July, Southbank Sinfonia – comprising some of the world’s most outstanding young musicians – makes its home at the Anghiari Festival in Tuscany. For a week, orchestral, choral and chamber music abounds from every piazza, church and cloister of this beautiful hill-town overlooking the Tiber valley.

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 2016, we are delighted to announce additional performances beyond our Anghiari residency, with a concert performance of Madama Butterfly at La Mortella, Ischia on Thursday 21 July, featuring soloists from Bury Court Opera. At the invitation of renowned pianist Alessio Bax, we are this year thrilled to perform at the Incontri in Terra di Siena Festival in Sinalunga on Saturday 30 July, with a programme including Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Piano Concerto No.5. Please follow the links for further details.

Further information on the festival programme will be announced later in 2016. If you would like to keep up to date with the latest details, please join our dedicated Anghiari e-mail list by clicking here or by contacting Ellie Greenhalgh at or on 020 7921 0370.

‘The orchestra’s residency in Anghiari, which is the backbone of the town’s music festival, has been a highlight of my summer for the last few years.’ James Naughtie, BBC Radio 4
