Magic during 'The Long Night of the Parishes

Choral and instrumental ensembles from Argentina, Slovenia and Italy for five concerts with tasting of typical local dishes

From 25 to 27 August, Carnia is transformed into a stage of emotions, a place where choral music meets the spirituality of the parish churches. Each concert becomes a moment of reconciliation in the spirit, a journey that leads inside ancient Carnic churches, full of history and charm. After each performance, the pleasure of sharing does not stop: tastings of typical local dishes offer the opportunity to explore the most authentic flavours of Carnia

Friday 25 August
Parish church of Santa Maria Annunziata di Castoia di Socchieve, 20.00

"The Fantastic Violin" is the title of the first concert, where violinist Magherita Pupulin and lutenist Eduardo Egüez will perform a programme combining the power of the violin and the voice. A unique sound experience that awakens deep feelings, accompanied by the participation of the choristers-in-residence. After the concert, refreshments with tastings by the Caseificio Val Tagliamento will make the evening even more special.
