65th International Festival of Contemporary Music
“Choruses – Drammaturgie vocali” directed by Lucia Ronchetti
The 65th International Festival of Contemporary Music “Choruses – Drammaturgie vocali” will run from 17-26 September 2021, directed by Lucia Ronchetti.
Choruses is a wide-ranging festival that is an invitation to a sort of “listener’s pilgrimage” through historic places and theatres – from the Arsenale (Tese, Sale d’Armi, Piccolo Arsenale) to the Basilica di San Marco, the Teatro La Fenice, the Teatro Malibran, the Auditorium Lo Squero at the Fondazione G. Cini and the Conservatorio B. Marcello to the Teatro Parco Bissuola in Mestre.
Concerts, sound installations, experimental performances, vocal happenings, a processional opera and a chamber musical theatre work will present the many facets of the voice in contemporary creativity, from the monumental choral works of the past decades to the dramaturgical explorations of the most recent vocal production
The Festival will feature important Venetian choral ensembles along with some of the most representative choral and vocal ensembles in Europe, and composers from different generations who have created important vocal and choral a cappella works, vocalists and performers from different musical traditions, sound artists who integrate the voice into their sound projects. The young composers and performers selected by the Biennale College will compose new works in the diverse forms of composition represented in the festival.
Finally encounters, lectures and Lezioni di Musica in collaboration with Rai Radio3 serve to highlight the relationship between the Venetian vocal musical tradition and the contemporary age.
The programme may change.
