Ponte di Legno: a concert in memory of Pope Paolo VI

Pope Paolo VI is one of the greatest personages who was born in the territory of Brescia. The Festival Pianistico Internazionale and the Filarmonica del Festival dedicate to his memory a concert in Ponte di Legno, wonderful mountain resort in Valle Camonica where the family of the Pope still owns a house and where Giovanni Battista Montini spent his holidays as a young man, priest and later as a cardinal. The concert, which marks the 39th anniversary of the Pope’s passing, will be held on 6 August, in the main church.  The Filarmonica will be conducted by Pier Carlo Orizio and will perform Mendelssohn’s Sinphony n. 10, Elgar’s Serenata op. 20 and two works by Mozart, the Mottetto k 165 for  Soprano and Orchestra (with Alessia Pintossi) and the Symphony k 201.

The concert is at its 18th edition. The entrance is free.
