There are places in the world where, even if you don’t want to, you would bump into. On the contrary there are others so hidden and remote that you would struggle to get to.There are crowded, noisy places that would send you to isolation and there are others so silent and quiet that invite you to pleasantly mingle with people.There are places which are fully-equipped, but cold and impersonal and others where any single stone reveals history and traditions in a cozy and intimate atmosphere. If you are looking for such a treasure and rare venue, you’ve got it!
The concert season by Ravello Concert Society (RCS) is a traditional and well established event in Ravello which over the years has delighted thousands of visitors with a wide range of performances by soloists and chamber music groups: excellent musicians who offer interesting, engaging music. And there’s always the chance to make new friends, meet the artists and escape from your “to-do” list for an hour or two.
Our historical location, the Annunziata Historic Building, is located just beyond the Villa Rufolo Park and, with its world famous domes, is the landmark of Ravello and its Music Festival. The Annunziata was built in 1281 by the noble family Fusco and later became part of the Rufolo family estate. A restoration work was carried out in 1982-1983, bringing the Historic Building to its original romanesque style. Since then this structure with its two Recital Halls connected by a porch, has been used as location for our concerts.
Our new recital hall, the Ravello Art Center, the former Grand Caruso Wine Cellar, very close to Ravello’s main square (about 50 meters from the parking lot and 30 meter from the bus stop) will host all two-piano performances.
Enjoy some of the most sought-after artists in Ravello’s most acoustically perfect halls! Immerse yourself in great classics or cool jazz improvisations and be part of an audience that knows how essential chamber music is to the soul.
