Chamber Music Festival Based in Toronto, Canada, and in Canna, Italy
Canna is a small village of approximately 800 people - 1,000 in August - situated in the mountains in the northern-most part of Calabria, about ten kilometres from the Ionian Sea. It boasts two wonderful restaurants, "Le Logge"—a refurbished old mill, and "L'Isola Che Non-C'e"—featuring "al fresco" dining in a splendid garden of lemon, lime and orange trees.
Incontri di Canna
From the audience perspective, the Cannese are "meeting" some of the most important chamber music works written over the centuries, perhaps for the first time - certainly live for the first time.
Then there are the "meetings" of different cultures. The food and wines are grown primarily in this small agrarian community and are often produced via the oldest recipes.
Finally, we stand on the ground of Ionia - part of Ancient Greece - and the many opportunities to visit archaeological sites bring about yet another type of "meeting".
Since the Comune di Canna supports the musicians' accommodation and meals, the concert prices for the Cannese are always free. As a result, you should reserve the available seating early.
