An artistic promotional video of the places hosting the concerts will be disseminated on the web and the rest will be done by images, singing and the spirit of beauty that is the real inspiration of the initiative. I sincerely thank the regional councilors Federico Caner and Cristiano Corazzari for having believed in the proposal of the Filarmonia Veneta Regional Orchestra for their sensitivity. “
“This review testifies to the importance of cultural events as a promotional vehicle for the area and its hospitality industry, especially in this crucial moment of relaunching our activities – underlines the regional councilor Federico Caner -. The Region supports the Concerts of the Rebirth because it strongly believes in the value of this artistic expression, but also because through music and its places of representation, one of the best images of Veneto, of its countless and various locations, radiates nationally and internationally. extraordinary beauty. And ‘Veneto, the Land of Venice’ is synonymous with art, culture, charm and hospitality “.
“For the next three years of my mandate as Artistic Director of the Filarmonia Veneta Regional Orchestra – explains Ricci – we will adopt a new philosophy. No longer only a cultural service body for minor circuits, but also of musical representation of excellence of the Veneto Region in the world. We will bring opera and symphonic music to the territory, enhancing our musical proposal with artists and soloists of the highest level. But the real novelty – the artistic director anticipates – will be the establishment in autumn of the Filarmonia Veneta Regional Youth Orchestra exclusively as a training laboratory for young musicians that we will choose from the Venetian conservatories and that we will admit to courses after rigorous selections. A new path shared by our musical director Marco Titotto and by the president of the ORV Alberto Barbaro “.
