Christmas in Ravenna | The Concerts 2017
Dates: 16/12/2017, 17/12/2017, 19/12/2017

This year at Christmas time the traditional Christmas concerts performed in several churches of Ravenna and surrounding territory by famous orchestras and choirs will cheer up the city.

From early December plenty of initiatives are invading Ravenna with their music: the opening event is Christmas concert: choral and sacred music by the orchestra Giovani W.D.G., the choir I Vecchioni di Mariele and the children from the school I. Masih scheduled on Saturday 9th December at the Church San Massimiliano Kolbe in Lido Adriano.

A must is the Christmas concert "Misa Tango", a mass to the rhythm of Tango by Martin Palmieri from Argentina scheduled on Saturday 16th December at 9pm in the Basilica of San Giovanni.

The music appointments to celebrate Christmas continue on Sunday 17th December with a double performance: at 11am traditional and gospel Christmas songs by Gospel Choir Voices of Joy at the Dante Alighieri Theatre and at 6.30pm the traditional Concert for the Nativity for solos, choir and orchestra at the Basilica of San Francesco.

On December 20th in the Church of SS. Simone e Giuda will be the Christmas Concert "Stella D'Oriente" with the female choir La Gioia, while the Christmas Concert of the music festival Capire la Musica will be held in the Basilica of San Francesco on December 21st at 9pm. In the end, the Dante Alighieri Theatre will host Banda Cittadina di Ravenna for their traditional performance while at the Casa Matha there will be a concert inspired by Irish Christmas.

The final appointment will take place at the Luigi Rasi Theatre on St. Stephen's Day at 3pm: the show La Rumagna inte tu cor dedicated to traditional folk songs from Romagna by choral group Pratella-Martuzzi.
