MITO SettembreMusica 2017

From September 3rd to 21st, the MITO SettembreMusica one-of-a-kind musical extravaganza will make a welcome return to Milan and Turin; the two cities will join forces to present 140 concerts (70 for each city) from important international musicians alternating with performers from Milan and Turin.

A thousand years of music onstage comprising Ambrosian, Baroque, Classicism, Romanticism and twentieth-century up to experimental works from 115 living composers and ten Italian premieres: the entire city will be involved, from the historical centre to the periphery, reaching out to all of Milan’s pulsating neighbourhoods and to the metropolitan outskirts.

This year's theme is Nature, a source of inspiration for great composers, as well as indispensable material for the actual creation of musical instruments.

The Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester will inaugurate the event - directed by Ingo Metzmacher, with the participation of pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet - performing at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan on Sunday, September 3rd for a concert titled "Quattro Paesaggi" (Four Landscapes).

Following the success of MITO Open Singing 2016, once again Piazza Duomo will become a stage for all those who want to become singers, led by the Italian Youth Choir. It will be held on Sunday, September 10th, at the end of the “Giorno dei Cori” (Choir Day) preceded by thirty choral concerts in different urban areas.

Many events are also designed for young children (from two years upwards) and focused on the weekend, such as Play, dedicated to early childhood, and Orpheus, the story of Monteverdi's masterpiece on the 450th anniversary of the composer's birth.

As per tradition, MITO SettembreMusica offers great shows with low entry fees. Afternoon concerts are free of charge or cost € 5, the same price as tickets for children under 14. Evening concerts range from € 10 to 30. Concerts around the metropolitan area are free of charge.

The jamboree, sponsored by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism, is produced by Pomeriggi Musicali in Milan and the Turin Cultural Foundation, thanks to financial commitment from the two cities and to the precious contribution from sponsors, especially the main partner Intesa Sanpaolo, who has been committed to the project since the first edition, with the support of San Paolo, Pirelli and the Fiera of Milan Foundation.
