Accademia Santa Cecilia Summer Season

beethoven ninth at foro italico

Rome’s Santa Cecilia Orchestra starts its summer season on a high note with Beethoven’s symphony no. 9 “Choral,” one of the classical canon’s most iconic works. A truly special concert is planned for Tuesday, 05 July, at 21:15. In a setting highly unusual for classical music, Foro Italico’s Centre Court, which normally plays host to tennis champions, will welcome, for the first time, a “champion team” from the world of music, the Orchestra and Chorus of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia led by Antonio Pappano. Maestro Pappano invites everyone to attend, because: “Like sports, music is good for the soul, and helps make dreams come true.”

Tickets from 10 to 60 €


Later in the month, the orchestra returns to its home theater, Parco della Musica, for a slew of outdoor concerts at Luglio Suona Bene, including the famed jazz musician Stefano Bollani on July 14th; Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana (world premiere) on July 16th; crossover violinist David Garrett on July 21st; and cinematic scores by John Williams, including Steven Spielberg’s E.T., Indiana Jones, and Jaws on July 28th.
