One of Italy's best-known orchestras, the Santa Cecilia is going from strength to strength under the inspired leadership of Sir Antonio Pappano.
The orchestra is part of the Academy of Santa Cecilia, one of the world's oldest musical institutions. It was founded in 1585 by the papal bull, Ratione congruit, issued by Pope Sixtus V in 1585. Today, it is the only example of an Italian academy originating in the Renaissance that has evolved into a functioning modern academy and symphonic concert organisation of international renown.
