I'm generally lucky enough to come to Venice annually, and any visit to Venice is always improved with some glorious live music, transporting us back to the 18C when this city was on the cutting edge of Western music. The Venice Music Project has performed in a number of venues in the city over the years, but their semi-permanent base of Saint George's Church seems to very work well. The programs are on the short side (meaning easy to fit into a full day of activities and before dinner), chosen with care, and performed with energy. There is generally a good mix of instrumental and vocal music. In a recent concert I was particularly impressed by the violinist Giacomo Catana and the lutenist Ivano Zaneghi. Both were superb. Highly recommended!
