The new project: Doc Music Festival Project: International Festival of Doctor’s Amateur Orchestras and Chamber Groups
Aiming to promote the non-professional music performance as well as multicultural friendships in the name of Music, the Festival has launched a new project dedicated to doctors’ amateur orchestras and chamber groups which shall be “The” cultural event of the Festival of Medieval Cities. As a tribute to the “glorious” tradition of amateur medical musicians, doctors’ amateur orchestras and chamber music groups will be invited to perform two concerts in the Festival of Medieval Cities between the 30th of July and the 4th of September 2016. While the Festival is taking place, the members of the various orchestras and chamber groups will have the possibility to enjoy excursions regarding the local historical and fine arts inheritance, the natural environment (including the Fiuggi’s secular thermal baths) as well as the wonderful food and wine production of Fiuggi and more generally of the province of Frosinone.
