This weekend, Venice Music Project offers you a unique program that will take you on a musical journey from England to Italy, guided by a very special guest...♪♫♬

Let us briefly introduce him...

Special guest Bud Roach hails from Canada! He is a singer and a theorbist (a theorbo player; which is a musical instrument similar to a lute), as well as a great musician who collaborates with the London Symphonia Les Violons du Roy, the Hamilton Philarmonic and many others.

We are very proud to host him on the Venice Music Project stage, also because he was one of the former students who participated in the Venice Opera Project; a month-long course in Baroque opera organized by Venice Music Project in 2015. He performed as a singer in the production of Gli amori di Apollo and Dafne by F. Cavalli, presented at the closing show of the course's program.

Bud has arranged the program for his concert ‘O Envious Day’ around the themes of the night, its beauty and the passage of time; with music by H. and W. Lawes, J. Wilson, T. Merula and many others. We look forward to sharing this experience with you!
