Samnium Symphony Orchestra (SSO)

" One of the many reasons why we founded the Samnium Symphony Orchestra was to give the opportunity to any musician, all over the world, to get in touch and make music together. In one word: to promote music in the world through the foundation of a permanent and stable orchestra. For this reason the Samnium University of Music has supported this initiative and, moreover, has created a digital platform for the management and coordination of a system of cooperation between musicians from all over the world, where they will collaborate between them for the equal exchange of logistics and booking. A special thanks goes to Maestro Leone Magiera appointed by Samnium Honorary President of the SSO. The orchestra will make its debut on 19 July 2021, conducted by Maestro Armellino, at the Musikverein in Vienna ".
