24 June-20 July 2005.
"The voice" and "singing" also appear, in a somehat unusual and even provocative way, at the Auditorium-Parco della Musica for the Accademia Nazionale di S. Cecilias summer season. Firstly, there is a concert by Gal Costa (4 July), diva of Brazilian music. It will then be the turn of Ute Lemper (11 July), whose name is linked to European cabaret, with songs of legendary names such as Edith Piaf or Marlene Dietrich in updated style and taste. There will be a concert by Cassandra Wilson (18 July), acclaimed by critics as one of the greatest living jazz singer. Miriam Makeba noted voice of African songs but above all, symbol of the struggle against racism and apartheid will close the series at the auditorium (21 July). To balance things out, there will also be two classical concerts. The first is a selection of symphonies and choruses from the most popular of Giuseppe Verdis work (13 July), conducted by Riccardo Frizza; the symphony which Verdi composed for Aida but which was then left out of the final score will also be performed. In the second concert, Beethovens 9th Symphony, with his celebrated "Hymn of Joy", will be performed, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel (20 July). Both of the concerts are with the orchestra and the choir of the Accademia di S. Cecilia. Paolo Di Nicola
