Festival Città di Cernobbio (Cernobbio Music Festival)

By Vacanze Lago • on July 25, 2011

The third edition of the Festival Città di Cernobbio ( Cernobbio Music Festival ) is back again this year and runs from the 16 to 29 July 2011 .

With Cernobbio’s lakeside as its backdrop, music is the star of this festival which offers visitors free performances by top musicians.

On Saturday, July 16 , the festival has been open at 10pm with a show called An Oscar Concert during which the Alexandria Classical Orchestra has performed some of the most famous film soundtracks.

As with last year’s festival, performances will be held in a transparent theatre-tent especially made for the occasion. There will be a focus on young musical talent, and the young musicians concerned will both perform and participate in training sessions.

Benefitting from the festival will be its charity partner Il Sorriso ( The Smile ) a socio-educational centre for the physically and mentally disabled which is based in Cernobbio. And helping run the 2011  festival’s events will be a number of prisoners who are taking part in a project, designed to help offenders reintegrate into society.
