Summer Courses in Umbria became a valuable cultural event

King Arthur – music of Purcell and contemporaries

21–25 July in Perugia (Library San Matteo degli Armeni) and 26 July in Deruta (Ceramics Museum)

We are happy that we were still able to organise these summer courses as planned, in spite of the corona crisis. Of course, a semi-staged performance with choir of Purcell's King Arthur would have be too complicated to organise. Therefore, we decided to celebrate in 2021 with an opera by Henry Purcell.

Thanks to the kind support of the municipalities of Perugia and Deruta, A.GI.MUS Perugia and the festival Musica dal Mondo, our tutor's concert and one participant's concert were warm-heartedly hosted in the Library San Matteo degli Armeni in Perugia. The final participant's concert took place in the court-yard of the Ceramics Museum in Deruta, with a festive final dinner on the main square.

We would like to share some inspiring moments with you.
