ARTISTIC DIRECTION
PHILIPPE HERREWEGHE

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

2017 promises to be a special year: the year in which artistic director Philippe Herreweghe celebrates its 70 years and in which the world is celebrating the Monteverdi-year (Claudio Monteverdi was born 450 years ago) !

 



The icing on the birthday cake will be the performance of Claudio Monteverdi’s Vespers by Collegium Vocale Gent and Philippe Herreweghe in the beautiful setting of the Sant’ Anna in Camprena monastery.

Therefore, the Accademia delle Crete Senesi 2017 will look different than the previous 15 editions: Collegium Vocale Gent will be the engine of the Festivalweek.

Be welcome to join us from Sunday 6th till Friday August 11th, 2017.

See you then!
