Associazione Amici della Musica Vittorio Cocito

Festival Cusiano di Musica Antica®

Established by Elena Bollatto in 1983, the Festival Cusiano di Musica Antica ® is the most prestigious musical tradition of Lake Orta and is currently one of the main international event of this kind.

As usual, the Festival takes place on the weekends of June: inauguration will be on the Island of San Giulio, at Casa Tallone where, alongside the first 4 concerts, will be held the Masterclass of Maestro Ettore Borri reserved for pianists and opened also to auditors. The following concerts will take place in Orta at Palazzo Penotti Ubertini.

The concerts of the Festival Cusiano constitute a precious opportunity to enjoy moments of serenity, combining the art of music, the beauty of the places with the pleasantness of meeting one another.

The size of the venues can guarantee a limited number of seats for each concert, so those interested in are invited to purchase tickets in advance.
In order to offer this opportunity to as many people as possible, the Associazione Amici della Musica is promoting a special initiative this year, extending to all those who purchase tickets by 31st May 2022 the discounts normally reserved exclusively for "under 25" and "over 65".

WEEKEND subscriptions, which include two Intermezzi and two Evening concerts, can be purchased at any time for &euro: 54.00 each, but no later than the Wednesday preceding the start of the chosen Weekend.

Special terms are reserved for groups with minimum 10 participants: the group coordinator is invited to contact the Association by email at
