Music workshop for children:
Brigata Corsara and Marco Volpatto will propose a musical workshop exclusively dedicated to children.

Workshops will be in the morning from 10.30 to 12.30.
On Sunday there will be a public execution.
The workshop will be free for participants and will also welcome any last minute members. But we urge those concerned to register as soon as possible in order to send the scores adapted for each component giving the opportunity to study their own part in these months of waiting.
