Making music in a magical place

What a full and wonderful session we are having! Visits to Orvieto and Florence, chamber music and chamber orchestra rehearsals and coachings, hikes exploring Spannocchia’s 1,100 acre campus and learning about the history of the estate and the various activities on the farm. Solo and chamber masterclasses, our third annual Bach in the Chapel concert, Italian language classes, providing music for an art reception and performing each night before dinner. Tonight we play Vivaldi L’estate and Double Cello Concerto at 7pm. After dinner, chamber ensembles perform. We wish you were here to fully experience the magic of making music in this special place. Here are few pictures to give you a glimpse into our rich life here at Tenuta di Spannocchia. More pictures to come. A presto!
