Have you ever dreamed of traveling back in time to Venice at the height of her splendor? Enter into the world of Vivaldi!
In celebration of Venice’s 1600th Birthday, Venice Music Project, ever-adaptable in the face of adversity, is the only organization in Venice to live-stream its entire concert season!
At the moment, it is impossible to predict when we might be able to travel again freely. Venice Music Project will guide you into our venue of choice, whether it is a Venetian palazzo, church, or concert hall. You will hear music that was first performed in Venice over 200 years ago, a musical experience that will transport you back to 17th and 18th century Venice, recreating the unique Baroque courtly entertainment that was enjoyed by Casanova and his friends in the city’s cafès, palaces, opera houses, and churches. Venice Music Project has recently uncovered many pieces of that music through collaborative research and our own musical archaeology in archives in Venice and around the world. These performances will give you the special opportunity to be among the FIRST to hear these works today.
In 2013, a group of internationally acclaimed musicians, hoping to make a difference in this fragile city that is our home, created the non-profit Association Venice Music Project. In addition to helping to protect our beloved city and her heritage, we are unearthing incredible manuscripts through musical archaeology. The world truly went mad for Mozart and forgot all the precious music that preceded and inspired him. Composers that he admired are just waiting to be rediscovered, and we are on it!
Since our founding, we have received precious support from around the world to sustain our mission of providing international-level concerts of Venice’s musical treasures for local subscribers and visitors. While we enjoy a cult following among Baroque music lovers, it is equally satisfying to meet first-time concertgoers after the show who have never been to a classical concert before, but are now big fans!
Join our cheering section, and help these composers find their voices.
We will Ba-ROCK you!
