LOCATION

We are in the center of Rome, in Via Venti settembre 7



Our venue

Our venue has been widely described by our guests as "intimate", "with excellent acoustics", and help to experience something like a private concert with the artists at a few feet distance and in which a familiar atmosphere thrives, especially after the concert when the artists mingle with the audience toasting and chatting.

St. Andrew's Church of Scotland

In the heart of Rome, close to Quirinale Palace

Our venue is the Scottish church in the center of Rome. It is located in Via Venti settembre 7, near the Quirinale Palace and Via delle Quattro Fontane.

From our venue you can reach in 5-10 minutes walk both the famous Trevi Fountain, Barberini Square, Via Veneto and Via Nazionale.

It is a comfortable, bright hall with a nice private courtyard that leads to the entrance allowing the spectators to gather before or after the concert for speaking and for tasting ourProsecco.

The acoustics is excellent and the seats allow an effective Covid-19 distancing: any pew being suitable for six people we now accomodate three people each.

Amazing concert, perfect setting

TripAdvisor score

When we first went into this small church, we were really wondering what we might hear. Then, the wonderful sounds of a professional opera singer came into the space and we were stunned with the beauty we heard. The concert ended much too early and we went out into the evening changed by the event. What a Fantastic performance!

Powerful and Intimate

TripAdvisor score

Wonderful pianist with an amazing tenor and soprano in an intimate setting. The singers were moving throughout and around the audience singing and feeling the emotion of the arias. A wonderful experience I would do again and again.

Exercise opera singing so close you can touch it

TripAdvisor score

I saw Rome Concerts with Alessandro Fantini (tenor), Federica Giblisco (soprano), and Giovanni Velluti (pianist) perform last night. They perform in small venues so you can get close, which is a real treat. It was a Christmas Concert. The concert alternated between arias, a piano piece, and then another opera with the greatest Napolina music like Funiculì, Funiculà and of course O Sole Mio. The pianist played Chopin and Liszt and told short anecdotes about their relationship with Italy at a time when most composers lived in Paris. Federica is a strong opera and she is a beautiful woman. The men will swoon. They signers wandered in and out of the crowd at the end let me take pictures with them. The tenor has a strong voice. The singers shared champagne with the audience. I have seen opera from the front row of the Met and the National Opera in Washington DC many times but this was the first time it was so close.

Wonderful experience

TripAdvisor score

The performers are very talented and yet so friendly and approachable. The explanation in English before the opera songs help us appreciate them even more. It is a small church, so we all get premium seats. One of the highlights of our Rome trip.

An experience to savour whether or not classical music is your thing

TripAdvisor score

My partner agreed, reluctantly, to accompany me to this performance on a spur of a moment impulse but to her surprise we both loved it. It felt so intimate and so wonderfully right in Rome. Like the music as it might have been performed when it was originally written - no vast stage with tiny figures glimpsed through binoculars and the sound coming from multiple speakers but right up close and personal. The sweat and the sawdust to borrow a phrase from boxing.
I'm no classical expert but the music was uplifting and invigorating - think mosh pit with chairs & nibbles and wine afterwards. Alternatively imagine yourself on your 18C Grand Tour taking in the experience of Rome with a personal concert. Whatever - do yourself a favour and book.
