The Crete Senesi | The Collegium Vocale Crete Senesi music Festival


   
   

In summer months, the otherwise silent spaces of the Crete Senesi in southern Tuscany are filled with music, thanks to a umber of fine festivals. Among them the Collegium Vocale Crete Senesi Festival and the Amiata Piano Festival.
Since 2017, the music festival Collegium Vocale Crete Senesi (formarly the Accademia delle Crete Senesi festival) is organized by Collegium Vocale Ghent. 

"The concerts take place in small but marvellous churches, chosen because of their adequate acoustics for the repertoire on the program. On dream locations such as the churches of Santo Stefano (Castelmuzio), Sant’Anna in Camprena (Pienza) and San Francesco (Asciano) both music lovers and performers can discover the Crete Senesi, one of the most beautiful and authentic regions of Europe, situated near well known cities such as Florence, Siena, Montepulciano or Montalcino, an amidst one of the most prestigeous wine areas of Italy."
