La Scala’s Philharmonic Orchestra took Milano by storm with a flashmob in Piazza Castello playing Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du printemps to promote a concert that will take place later this month as part of the “Expo in città 2014” series of events.
Conducted by prominent Finnish orchestral conductor and composer Esa – Pekka Salonen, the Philharmonic Orchestra will performe in Piazza Duomo on the 26th of May for an exclusive “Concerto per Milano”. The program will feature Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du printemps and Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto no. 2 performed by piano sensation Lang Lang.
Admission to the concert will be free, 200 seats are available and can be booked at the Urban Center ( in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, 11/12) from the May 23. For those who do not manage to book a seat, three mega-screens and an extraordinary sound system will be placed around the piazza Duomo.
Watch the video of the flashmob, you will certainly think: "I wish I was there!".
