The Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome’s Flaminio district celebrates a decade of cultural activity with a special day of free concerts and events on Sunday 9 June.
The party is being organised by the Accademia di S. Cecilia and the Musica per Roma Foundation throughout the spaces and halls of the multi-purpose arts complex designed by acclaimed Italian architect Renzo Piano.
Titled “Il gioco della musica” the programme of events – many of which take place concurrently – includes concerts, children’s workshops, lectures, guided tours, and live sets from morning until late evening.
One of the highlights includes the young musicians of the JuniOrchestra directed for the first time by Antonio Pappano – musical director of S. Cecilia – who will meet the public afterwards. There is also a tribute to Russian composer Sofia Gubaidulina, jazz music by Pino Minafra, and a performance by Gino Paoli together with Danilo Rea.
The world of theatre is represented by popular entertainer Ascanio Celestini, while there are live sets in the Cavea space by artists such as Mauro Ottolini & Sousaphonix Marching Band, and Raffaele Costantino.
The events are free but require tickets which are currently available from the Auditorium. There is a maximum of two coupons per person, for a maximum of three non-simultaneous events, and there is a limited availability: a proportion of tickets will be saved for the day of the celebrations, available from 10.00 on 9 June.
