The popular Italian resort of Lignano Sabbiadoro is located on the country’s Adriatic coast, approximately halfway between the magnificent cities of Venice and Trieste. As with many popular seaside towns, Lignano comes alive in the summer, and now your ensemble can be a part of that!

You’ll perform three evening concerts as part of a lively summer music festival. Your performances will take place at the town’s main seaside locations on specially constructed stages which all boast professional lighting and sound equipment. This is an exciting experience your ensemble will never forget!

Don't take our word for it …

All 3 concert venues were excellent. Camping Barca Real was a good venue - great fun with a very happy audience. The church in Lucca had amazing acoustics, and Lucca is an excellent place to busk too. — The Cherwell School , July 2014
