Titled CHORUSES - Drammaturgie vocali, the 65th International Festival of Contemporary Music of La Biennale di Venezia will run from 17 to 26 September, directed by composer Lucia Ronchetti. The focus of attention will be on “composing for the voice, based on the monumental choral works of the past decades to the dramaturgical explorations of the most recent vocal production” (L. Ronchetti).
