February News – We want to hear from you!
We want to know who you are!
La Serenissima is working hard to adapt to new market conditions post-pandemic and respond to increased obstacles to running live events. We are committed to bringing life-affirming Italian baroque music to listeners throughout the UK and beyond, and we want to get braver and bolder about the way we do this. But we need your help! If you feel able, please sign up to our mailing list here and provide your name and, importantly your location – first part of postcode or nearest town/city ideally. We need to understand where our followers are based in order to underpin our strategy for future concerts. Anyone who receives a Christmas card through the post from us, doesn’t need to do this – but anyone wishing to receive a Christmas card another year, is welcome to send us a full postal address so we can next year! Thank you for any information you are happy to share.
