Musical moments and free concerts all around the city.
From 4th to 21st September MITO SettembreMusica is back, and as always its aim is to spread music around the city. For the last nine years the festival has turned this into MITO per la Città, trying to bring classical music into all neighbourhoods.
This year there are thirty free concerts in at least three venues of each of the eight city boroughs, which become places to listen to music for the occasion: among them the churches (in the centre eg San Filippo Neri in Maria Vittoria 5, but also in the suburbs), theatres and auditoriums.
Gautier Capuçon’s cello will play in Madonna di Campagna, Borgata Parella will listen to the Brass Music Afternoon Concerts, Mirafiori Sud the cello, while in Cit Turin the Intesa Sanpaolo skyscraper will be home to the notes of Gabriela Montero’s piano. The Day of Choirs is also part of the MITO programme for the City, spread throughout the city territory and then concentrating experts and amateurs of choir singing in Open Singing in piazza San Carlo.
Music also enters places related to services, health, social care, education, and widespread culture. Four music ensembles of students at the Giuseppe Verdi Music Conservatory in Turin will meet elderly people and people with disabilities, people queuing at a desk as in a reading room.
Among the many elements developing the theme of Nature during MITO SettembreMusica 2017, the event also offers "musical walks" from parks to city cemeteries.
The festival devotes several musical moments to children: from newborns in the Maternity Ward of Sant'Anna Hospital, to growing children in their schools, and those healing, from Regina Margherita Hospital to Casa Oz and Casa UGI, where they will be able to listen to music fairy tales.
The event, sponsored by Compagnia di San Paolo, was presented on 1st September (11.30) at the Aula Magna Dellepiane, Sant'Anna Hospital (via Ventimiglia 3 Torino)
