MuSa, the acronym for “Music at Sapienza,” means playing, listening to and living music in Europe’s largest university. The MuSa Project, which began in 2006, now has the support of an ad hoc commission nominated by Sapienza Rector Eugenio Gaudio.
MuSa Orchestras include:
- MuSa Classica – orchestra and chamber ensembles play what is defined as a “classic” repertoire, directed by Maestro Francesco Vizioli;
- MuSa Jazz – big band and soloists play typical jazz standards by Ellington, Basie, Nestico and Hefti, as well as original arrangements of Italian, popular and international pop music, directed by Maestro Silverio Cortesi;
- MuSa Choir/Blues – vocal groups perform old and new polyphony and choir music, directed by Prof. Paolo Camiz and Maestro Giorgio Monari;
- EtnoMuSa – musicians and dancers perform traditional Italian music, coordinated by Letizia Aprile).
Participants range from music enthusiasts to conservatory students, but everyone must be motivated to invest time in performing together. The MuSa orchestras play at various Sapienza ceremonies and at public events in Rome.
Since 2011, the MuSa Classica Orchestra is a member of the dell’European Network of University Orchestras, which includes 110 orchestras from 16 European member states.
