“In cammino verso Assisi Pax Mundi” is a series of prestigious moments that want to lead us towards the 2017 edition of the international festival of sacred Franciscan music.
The first four events of music and pray had been a great success: national and international artists had performed in Assisi.
For the last date of “In cammino verso Assisi Pax Mundi”, Marco Cortinovis is arriving from Bergamo to Assisi on Friday the 8th of September to take part to an organ concert that will occur at 9 p.m. in the Santa Maria degli Angeli Basilica.
“In cammino verso Assisi Pax Mundi” appointments started on the 30th of June with the Victoria Jakarta Chapel from Indonesia. On the 5th of July it had been the turn of the Gloria Gala Concert from the USA. The Saint Francis Upper Basilica hosted the “Benedicam Dominum in omni tempore”: spiritual lifts of sacred music with the tenor Saverin Prassi and the organist Franz Karl Prassi. Finally it had been the turn of the European Youth Orchestra Bella Musica (Mozarteum from Salzburg) on the 28th of august.
Everything is almost ready for Assisi Pax Mundi fourth edition that is dedicated to the theme “Dialogue: bond of Communion”. The festival will take place from the 19th to the 22nd of October 2017 with many concerts that will occur into the different Assisi’s Franciscan places and their surrounding. The top moment of the festival will be the final concert where all involved choirs will participate. The event will finish with a Solemn Mess in the Saint Francis Upper Basilica during which Father Domenico Stella will direct all participating groups in the performance of the Creatures Song.
