On Saturday 1 October 2022, the Children’s Choir of the Accademia Teatro alla Scala returns in concert in Mesero, directed by Bruno Casoni and accompanied on the piano by Marco De Gaspari.
The young singers will also be joined by the Academy’s string quartet, composed of Da Wong Ghang, Kinga Dobryniewska, Giulia Guardenti and Sofia Bellettini.
The event, which will be held in Piazza Europa, is part of the celebrations for the centenary of Saint Gianna Beretta Molla, whose remains rest in a chapel in the cemetery of the Milanese municipality.
The rich musical program ranges from Verdi and Rossini to the compositions of Edward Elgar up to the contemporaries Morricone, Rutter, Papoulis, Schulze and Schwarz, to conclude with the iconic “Mamma” by Cesare Andrea Bixio.
With this concert, the 2022-23 artistic activity of the Children’s Choir, directed by Maestro Casoni for thirty years, kicks off.
In December 2022, January and March 2023, the little students will participate in the opera and ballet productions of the Teatro alla Scala Season (The Nutcracker with the choreography of Rudolf Nureyev from December 17, 2022 to January 11, 2023 and La bohème in the historic staging of Franco Zeffirelli from 4 to 26 March 2023).
Then, they will be busy with the usual Christmas concert on December 23rd, included in the programming for children curated and created by Mario Acampa, entitled Lalla and Skali and … the snow-eating monster.
