Music to Your Ears: Incontri in Terra di Siena
Music? Check. History? Check. Regional cuisine? Check.
The Incontri Terra di Siena is not only a favorite cultural event of many past HomeBase Abroad villa guests, but is also your ticket to a little taste of la dolce vita.
Running from July 22-25, the festival features nightly chamber music performances against a backdrop of the stunning gardens at the Villa La Foce or nearby Castelluccio di Pienza, a medieval castle. Both locations are conveniently located near a number of alluring Tuscan vacation villas including the Podere I Troscioni, Podre la Vetrichina, and Podra Lucia.
This year’s performance lineup includes:
- The legendary Tallis Scholars
- Irish pianist Barry Douglas
- Italian violinist Domenico Nordio
- Russian pianist Mikhail Lidsky
- Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto
Dinners and samplings of regional wines are served before the festival’s performances and attendees may become “patrons” to enjoy exclusive perks such as preferred seating and dinners with the artists. Tickets are available for single performances or season blocks and can be reserved at http://itslafoce.org/tickets.
