26 - 31 JUL 2020

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
PHILIPPE HERREWEGHE

Collegium Vocale Crete Senesi is the annual music festival under the artistic direction of Philippe Herreweghe in the beautiful region of the Crete Senesi in Tuscany, Italy.

In 2020 the festival runs from Sunday 26 to Friday 31 July.

You‘ll find the detailed programme here below.

We sincerely hope to welcome you in Tuscany in 2020!

Collegium Vocale Crete Senesi is an organization of Collegium Vocale Gent



2020 will be an exceptional year for Collegium Vocale Crete Senesi!

Three birthdays come together in our Tuscan festival. No one less than Ludwig van Beethoven saw the light of day 250 years ago and his oeuvre will be the focus of many concerts. Collegium Vocale Gent is celebrating its 50th anniversary and of course we will not let that half-century of music history pass us by unheard of, and surely not in Italy! But above all, it is 20 years ago that Philippe Herreweghe started a festival in the Crete Senesi that hasn’t lost any of its charm and charisma since then, on the contrary! Discover the new program of the next edition below!
