Until now we have warmed up – so to speak, given the somehow bizarre and chilly climate of this year – but June is our main door to the Summer season! Here are some EVENTS NOT TO BE MISSED in Gambassi Terme.
CHAMBER MUSIC AT SANTA MARIA A CHIANNI CHURCH
It’s time for Classica, a festival that – between June and July – will bring the Orchestra Toscana‘s musicians to play at the Pieve di Santa Maria in Chianni and at the Jerusalem of San Vivaldo.
In Gambassi Terme, Classica is scheduled on June 9th, 16th and 30th.
Considered one of the best in Italy, the Orchestra Toscana is based at the Teatro Verdi in Florence; some of its members go on tour as smaller ensemble, presenting varied repertoires.
