Due to Notre Dame's decision to move all courses online through at least April 13, the concert has been postponed to Fall 2020. We will share more information on rescheduling at a later date.
Since 2016, each Spring semester, the Center for Italian Studies sponsors an Italian concert, together with the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures and other campus units.
Each year, the concert is conceived around a specific theme or artist. In 2016, the concert focused on Mina, while in 2017, it explored the work of several Italian cantautori, or singer-songwriters, on the theme of Italian history through music. In 2018, with over 800 spectators in attendance at the Leighton Concert Hall in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, the concert focused on the role of the artist in Italy.
This year, the theme will center on Italy's Mediterranean musical identity in a global context. For more information about this year's concert, click here.
