Ravenna Festival • Le vie dell’Amicizia: concert for Syria
Mauro de André Palace - Viale Europa, 1
Following Dante's words, chosen for this 31st Festival's edition, ‘Sweet colour of the oriental sapphire’, the meeting between the East and the West, source of life and knowledge, shows even his most obscure face, an East slaughtered and forced to exodus.
So, on Friday 3 July, the Orchestra Giovanile Cherubini and the Syrian National Symphony Orchestra meet under the baton of Maestro Riccardo Muti for the concert Le vie dell’Amicizia, a bridge of brotherhood in the name of friendship among the peoples, paying a homage to the 35 year-old Syrian activist Hevrin Khalaf, brutally killed last year. These two nations will be united through a monumental masterpiece by Beethoven, a hymn to Europe and to friendship.
Dedicatoed to Hevrin Khalaf (1984-2019)

Conductor Riccardo Muti
Orchestra Giovanile Luigi Cherubini
