Recommended by the New York Times in the article "36 Hours in Venice," Venice Music Project presents its fourth season of concerts, taking you back in time to the era when Venice was a musical center of international prestige. Together, we will discover the great tradition of music in the Veneto, performed with original instruments and performance practices, in the prestigious Palazzo Rota Ivancich, where Hemingway and Liszt were among the many important guests. Our resident orchestra, Venetia Antiqua, will also host prestigious ensembles from around the world. An important part of our mandate is the restoration of the places where we perform and the works of art that they contain, to help the city to remain alive for our own and future generations. This will be possible through our US501c3 non-profit organization, Friends of Venice Music Project, our Italian Associazione Culturale for European donations, and additionally a portion of box office receipts.

Once again, The Venice Music Project surpassed my expectations.The baroque music on early instruments was captivating--every single piece and the selections of Handel, Vivaldi, and Hasse were very generous.

Using original musical instruments from the Baroque period, the musicians played several pieces - some accompanied by a Soprano Opera singer and some without. The concert is in a church which gives a wonderful acoustical ambiance. We were seated right in the front row but...More
