Address: Via Pisana, 77 , Florence

Date: Sunday 06 January 2019


Two events involving the Little Pomegranate Choir on the day of the Epiphany. On Sunday 6 January at 2.30 pm on the churchyard of the Cathedral, the impressive procession of figures organized by the Opera of Santa Maria del Fiore will perform during the Cavalcade of the Magi , reviving an ancient Florentine tradition of the fifteenth century.

At 5 pm the young singers will be at the Limonaia di Villa Strozzi , in via Pisana 77 with the " Concerto della Befana ", with free entry with the organization of Quartiere 4. It will be dedicated to Duccio Dini , who died in 2018.
The show will be divided into two parts: the first with classic Christmas songs, the second part with a sort of preview on the repertoire that will accompany the Melograno Chorus next spring, characterized by a lot of polyphony and involving choreography.

"The events linked to the Epiphany have long been very demanding for our children - says the president of the Piccolo Pomoro Pomegranate Association Mario Piccioli - but always with great enthusiasm and motivation. Participating in the Cavalcata dei Magi is a source of satisfaction and emotion, as a tribute to our tradition and our beloved Florence. The songs that we bring to Capannucce in the City for many years now allow us to share a nice party with hundreds of children. Last but not least, the event in District 4: it is particularly important for us to be able to help the Friends of Duccio Dini association . Our reality is made up of parents who do something for their children's future. We can only get close to a family that has lost its own child, so that what happened to Duccio will never happen again ".
