ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
PHILIPPE HERREWEGHE

Dear friends of the Crete Senesi,

The last few months have been difficult for everyone and for many people it were hard times. A sector that has been hit particularly hard is culture in general and music in particular. The concert life has been at a standstill everywhere, and as long as the population has not been vaccinated, the halls will not be able to restart properly. It’s as simple as that, and as simple as that it may stay for a while.

In such a situation, a musician is very unhappy: he feels like a nightingale with cut-off grand wings.

Yet there is hope: the borders will open again, and just about everywhere in Europe an audience of two hundred people will be conceivable.



Also because we realize how you crave heavenly music in real live performances, and not on that damned little screen, we decided with the Collegium Vocale to let the twentieth edition of our Crete Senesi Festival take place in spite of all difficulties, with most of the performers foreseen, but in slightly changed circumstances: less audience, concentrated in Asciano and with some creative solutions. You can read the practical info below.

Of course, we will carefully take into account the necessary safety regulations as they will then be.

We hope to see you soon in Asciano. It will undoubtedly be ‘una bella annata’!
