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 2019 the festival runs from Sunday 28 July to Friday 2 August.

You‘ll find the detailed programme here below.

We sincerely hope to welcome you in Tuscany in 2019!

Collegium Vocale Crete Senesi is an organization of Collegium Vocale Gent.



Once again, the extraordinary Tuscan hills will be the unsurpassed setting for the 2019 Collegium Vocale Crete Senesi festival. As always, this gem of a music festival puts quality and variety first.

Artistic director Philippe Herreweghe is inviting famous and less-famous kindred spirits to arouse your curiosity and amazement for a full week this summer! From the intoxicating Italian trecento to the rapture of the Viennese Romantic, we’ll be serving up a daring selection of eight centuries of music history, along with Collegium Vocale Gent!
