Why this name ? We believe that sacred spaces - like churches or other religious objects - are for each and everyone of us and not only for 'chosen ones' or for those, who are already familiar with classical music. 'Sacred Spaces' is an opportunity, to join other people, who are developing and improving their individual qualities. We want to emphasize the understanding, that each individual has the right to attend a sacred space and to discover these possibilities within themselves.
We will start this musical journey on the 25th of November at 7 pm at our YouTube-Channel with a concert of the Italian harpist Emanuela Battigelli at the Church of Sant' Antonio Abate in San Daniele del Friuli, not far from Udine in Italy.
Emanuela Battigelli will play on the Irish harp a program inspired by Saint Martin's Summer.
