Venice Music Project Breathes New Life Into Historic Building

Venice Music Project Breathes New Life Into Historic Building

By  – May 1, 2015

Music and Venice, Italy are a perfect combination — and the non-profit Venice Music Project seeks to share this beautiful pairing with a new roster of performances. Concerts by resident orchestra Venetia Antiqua Ensemble are held near the Basilica dei Frari in the historic Church and Scuola of San Giovanni Evangelista, founded in 970 C.E. A portion of proceeds from box office sales goes to fund the building’s ongoing restoration and art preservation program.

Performance highlights, coming up later this month and during the summer, include O Dear Life — English Music of the Elizabethan Period, featuring compositions for soprano, flute, cymbals and viola (May 22 and 24); The Prisoner of Love with the Venetia Antiqua Orchestra and soprano Liesl Odenweller (June 5 and 7); A Special Baroque Musicale with Quartetto by Andrea Palladio (June 12 and 14); and Dances, Whims & Eccentricities with the Venetia Antiqua Orchestra (June 19, 21, 26 and 28).
