Happy 2018!

Hello New Year! Full of new promises, fresh plans and exciting prospects, a blank slate waiting to be written on. A bit like what America represented for many people: the land of hope and new opportunities… No better theme, in other words, for this New Year’s concert than that positive America.

The New Year’s concert will be one, in other words, that combines traditional waltzes with jazz, swing and Broadway grandeur: eclectic, but what a party! With his unbridled energy, guest conductor Giancarlo Guerrero, who has himself fulfilled the American dream, is the ideal host of this sparkling New Year’s concert. Happy 2018!
