Event for the Epiphany organized by the Burlamacchi Lodge of Grande Oriente d’Italia with the Orchestra Sinfonica della Versilia
Great success yesterday (January 6th) at the Teatro San Girolamo for the 15th Concert of the Epiphany, with a record turnout. Music by Elgar, Mahler, Puccini, Sibelius, Benedetti A., Catalani, Frega S. And Mascagni has been performed by the Orchestra Sinfonica della Versilia wonderfully conducted by Stefano Teani, young and virtuous conductor, as well as pianist and composer. This was enriched bu the beautiful voice of Francesca Maionchi. The two young and talented composers, Salvatore Frega and Andrea Benedetti, were in the hall and, after the performance of tour pieces, joined the stage for the well-deserved clapping. Debora Pioli introduced the show.
The concert, organized by the Burlamacchi Lodge nr. 1113 for the Oriente di Lucca and Barga of Grande Oriente d’Italia, not only gave to the city a cultural event that’s always appreciated, but also aimed to raise money for the Anfass onlus of Lucca, represented by the counselor Vania Nottoli. Dr. Nottoli, while receiving the donation from the hands of the Worshipful Master of the Burlamacchi Lodge of Grande oriente d’Italia, Emanuele Costamagna, thanked for the kind act, saying that represents an important contribution for the Anfass to pursue the work of social assistance they always did.
This edition, after two years of forced break because of the pandemic, was dedicated to Giorgio Serafini, passed to the Eternal Orient in May 2021 and often summoned with emotion during the concert.
At the end of the concert, the WM of the Francesco burlamacchi Lodge gave the Soprano Francesca Maionchi and to Maestro Stefano Teani a plate in memory of the event.
In the hall there were the counselor for Turism of the Comune di Lucca, Remo Santini and the honorary Grand Masters of the Grande Oriente d’Italia, Massimo Bianchi and Mauro Lastraioli.
