After the successful experiment of the Saturday Concerts live streaming from the Conservatory Auditorium, followed every weekend by hundreds of people and many loyal ones, we continue to use the YouTube platform to continue to make students and teachers play and offer music to the public, such as took place in the past few years in the well-established concert series at Palazzo Bonacossi. We hope – he concludes – to return soon to play in places of culture, in safety ”.
