Scuola Grande di San Teodoro
The Scuola Grande di San Teodoro is dedicated to the original patron saint of Venice. The school is one of a remarkable group - the six Great Schools of the city. The establishment of the school can be traced to 1258, although the current structure was built between 1579 and1613 by the great architect, Tommasi Contin. The facade is topped by five statues, representing four angels and San Teodoro, above the rich entrance portal. The sculptures were created by Bernardo Falcon during the second half of the 17th century. I Musici Veneziani started performing their delightful concerts in the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro in the last few years of the 20th century. Many other artists have also performed in this famous School of Venice, including multiple performances of Vivaldi's 'The Four Seasons' by international classical stars.

Excellent musicians and singers, wonderful costumes. It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

This is more glam‐pop show‐biz and it’s musicality inferior to other splendid concerts we’ve seen in Vienna and Venice. The tenor soloist rescued a flat first half with his bounce and humour at the beginning of the second. It’s a light hearted evening of light hearted entertainment and as such quite pleasant.

We got there 45 minutes before the event started and there was already a line; we ended up sitting in the 5th row; so get there early to get the best seats.
