Rooftop string orchestra concert at the Zegna Wool Mill

Sound landscapes on the 4th FAI Panorama Day

On Sunday 10 September – the 4th FAI Panorama Day - Oasi Zegna will be turned into a richly evocative soundscape. For the first time, the rooftops of the Zegna Wool Mill will be hosting an extraordinary concert by “Obiettivo Orchestra” in collaboration with the Filarmonica Orchestra of Turin’s Teatro Regio.

The “Obiettivo Orchestra” Master’s course, created by the Filarmonica del Teatro Regio in Turin and the Scuola di Alto Perfezionamento Musicale in Saluzzo, is unique on the Italian music scene: the school, so far attended by 40 or so students, prepares young musicians for annual auditions held by various opera and symphony orchestras. Running from November 2016 to June 2017, the course enabled students to continue their orchestral training and explore their aptitudes for ensemble music.

There was a special focus on the string section and the best students were subsequently given the opportunity to work with the Filarmonica del Teatro Regio di Torino. The course closed with a veritable “audition”, with the participation of Gianandrea Noseda, music director at the Filarmonica del Teatro Regio di Torino and a winner at the 2016 International Opera Awards.

Trivero will thus be the venue for a grand musical event on 10 September featuring young musicians from Obiettivo Orchestra in collaboration with the Filarmonica del Teatro Regio di Torino.
