Dear friends, by purchasing tickets, you agree to сomply with our rules for concertgoers.

Ave Maria. Ave is the Latin for “Rejoice!”: this way the Angel greeted Mary bringing her the happy announcement. Very often we wish someone would say the same to us, confidently and kindly. Sometimes it is music that does so: in the Cathedral housing a genuine church organ it is particularly powerful.
Our pre-Christmas mood is very important. The feast is just a brief moment, but the anticipation is long. We live in anticipation, we create it as a painter creates his paintings, and fill our whole December with this feeling, when days become so short.
