Musica e Spirito • 2016
Basilica of San Francesco - Piazza San Francesco, 1
Dates: 20/11/2016, 18/12/2016

The Musica e Spirito music festival will take us on a journey to discover the spiritual and fascinating world of Baroque music.

The Choir of the Basilica of San Francesco of Ravenna was founded in May 2012 by the collaboration of the Concentus Novus vocal group, Mosaici Sonori cooperative and Franciscans Friars Minor of this basilica, to promote the study and dissemination of sacred music through concerts and various events (courses, seminars, conferences). The conductor is Giuliano Amadei.

This year, three Friday events will be dedicated to Dante and the Divine Comedy, thanks to the original music of the Basque composer Izutegui Koro.
