More than 60 concerts will take place at home and abroad this year
The Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra (OPMC)’s new season, under the artistic and musical direction of Gianluigi Gelmetti, has been organised to include many different musical styles.
The “Grand Saison” will bring together fifteen concerts which will take place at the Rainier III Auditorium and at Grimaldi Forum. This series will show off the Orchestra’s grand symphonic concerts.
Five “Salle Garnier” concerts are also planned. These slightly smaller performances of classical works will take place at the Monte-Carlo Opera.
A cine-concert (a concert along with the projection of a film) will also be included in this series.
The Église Saint-Charles will also host four spiritual concerts which will be free and open to all.
Three “Jeune Public” concerts will also be offered for children accompanied by their parents at the Rainier III Auditorium.
As far as the early evening is concerned, the twelve Happy Hour Musicals have been a great success along with the series of chamber music concerts.
Two travelling concerts will also visit the Maison de l’Amérique Latine in Monaco. There will be a reception after the concert finishes where spectators can get to know the musicians over drinks in a friendly atmosphere.
The Philharmonic Orchestra will take part in various events throughout the year, including the Gala of the Rainier III Music Academy, the Princess Grace Dance Academy’s Gala, and the Génération Virtuoses festival in Antibes.
In July and August, six concerts will take place in the Prince’s Palace, which will be a magical opportunity for an international audience to listen to the orchestra and its soloists.
Finally, the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra will perform not only inside the Principality but in countries such as France, China, Italy and more.
