Not(t)e nel Chiostro – Music in the Cloister, Summer 2018

Not(t)e nel Chiostro – Music in the Cloister, Summer 2018

Three evening concerts in the cloister of the Church of San Michele to raise funds for and promote our crowdfunding campaign!

The event series, called Not(t)e nel Chiostro, runs from July 11-31, 2018 and all three evenings begin at 9:30pm.

We begin Wednesday July 11 with the Associazione Omega Musica, an orchestral composition of some 40 young people (four of them will join us) who collaborate with some of the most important orchestras in Tuscany. Tuesday July 17 is dedicated to Jazz by Left Saxophone Quartet, a group formed in 2016 by 4 high school students from Pistoia and known for their fresh repertoire. The events conclude with classical piano by Samuele Drovandi on July 31.

These events have received the patronage of the City of Carmignano and have been made possible thanks to the contributions of our sponsors Autocarrozzeria Italia, Cafissi spa e Misericordia di Carmignano.

The concerts are free with a suggested donation. These events are part of a larger fundraising project recently begun by the parish, involving various connected elements including the crowdfunding campaign at, the loan of the Visitation by Pontormo, and the search for sponsors for the restoration of the church and complex.
