Friday 14 July at 8.30 p.m. a magnificent concert of sacred music will take place for the Festival of Redentore 2016, a traditional cultural event organized by the Associazione Culturale Musica Venezia.
The Festival of Redentore is a Venetian festival that occurs every year on the third Sunday of July. It celebrates the construction of the Redentore Church as a votive offering for the liberation of the city from the plague of 1575-1577, a disaster which caused the death of more than one-third of the population of the city in only two years.
