Free concert of classical music

Next Tuesday, the 1st of July, enjoy a spectacular concert of beautiful classical music, performed by the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino orchestra.
For the final concert Zubin Mehta will direct one of the most loved simphonies:
Ludwig van Beethoven's "Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 Choral"
One of the best known works of the Romantic repertoire, and one of Beethoven's greatest masterpieces.

The concert will start at 9.30 pm in Piazza della Signoria.

Hello, I was very glad to find your blog. I will be in Florence on September29 until October 2 and wonder if there are any good concerts to hear during that time. Then only ones I find online seem to be for tourists, and I am a serious musician. Thank you for your help.

Grazie! Unfortunately that was about the extent of my Italian...being a singer, I was always able to pronounce, but rarely able to understand.

Thanks for your efforts, I think we're planning to hear the Florence Sinfonietta on the 1st of October. We'll keep an eye out for anything else that's interesting while we're there.

Last December we were in Vienna, a little disheartened that all the concerts seemed to be 'tourist' concerts, when I discovered a brochure in a church listing all the special Advent music being performed in all the churches. We had an AMAZING selection. So, hopefully we'll stumble across something similar while we're in Florence. Sometimes luck is more helpful than planning :)

Hello,
We will be visiting Florence for a week beginning March 6 and we are interested in hearing some classical music. Do you know of any venues that have small chamber orchestras. Thank you,

Dear Nelli,

I luckily stambled apon your blog and was wondering if you could help me find some interesting church concerts (or a way to find church concerts) in Florence for the end of March (28, 29, or 30).

My parents are celebrating their 40th anniversary and are taking the 3kids to Florence where my Mom has always dreamt to go. I live in Canada, my bros and parents are in France.

Any tips would be helpful if you have the time,

Cheers, Anne-Sophie
