Saturday August 12th at 9pm the Church of the Ascension in Cadenabbia (Griante) will host the Celtic Harp Orchestra for an unforgettable evening of music.
The Celtic Harp Orchestra, come to life thanks to the far-sightedness of the organizers of â€œCelticaâ€ festival in the Aosta Valley (who hosted the first concert of CHO in 2002), can now be proud of being the most imitated harp orchestra of the world, with countless reviews in all the most important media, newspapers, magazines, radios and tv channels.
"Music comes to life from nature and time as a charm; it entertains and heals, singing what's happening and being passed on from soul to soul".
This is what C.H.O.'s music is about: a soul voyage through space and time, from the notes of traditional songs, through sacred musics from Middle Ages, to original compositions ruled by fusion and research. No surprise then if during our concerts the audience is led thorugh an imaginary voyage starting from ancient scottish legends and moving on to real stories of irish and breton Kings, going through the Old Continent and then approaching the New World - with rhythm contaminatins from argentine tango and from swing - and then back to the colours of the Mediterranean, reaching our own cultural roots by amazingly revisiting in musical form the works of the most famous italian poet of all times: Dante.
