Bringing the past into the future

Are you looking for a unique and enjoyable experience to make your stay in Venice even more special? Something combining tradition, art and music? If this is the case, look no further, I Musici Veneziani is just the ticket! Formed in 1996, the well-known orchestra, I Musici Veneziani comprises a number of carefully selected virtuoso musicians. Dressed in exquisite typical 18th-century Venetian costumes and jewelry, the orchestra and singers perform concerts in the exclusive setting of the Salone Capitolare of the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro in the Rialto district. It is located on the first floor of the building, and following performances here of the Orchestra’s first concert seasons, became one of the most prestigious concert halls in the city.


Shows are held all year long and upon reservation for private events.
