Monaco Summer Concerts at the Prince’s Palace

An enchanting harmony of sound and music by the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra will once again resonate with the Prince’s Palace in Monaco this summer. Soloists and a grand orchestra, along with their conductors, will give the audience a series of magical pieces that will move time and emotions.

The Royal Family and Grimaldi Princes have long been patrons of music and the arts — this event was established in 1856. From the 1960s until today, the palace’s courtyard (Cour d’Honneur) has served as the venue for this musical event.

This awe-inspiring experience and tradition is made even more impressive by the delicate setting in the palace’s courtyard with fantastic acoustics. Its ideal trapezoid shape gives an extraordinary precision of the music.

Every year, the concert takes place on several delightful nights in July and August. There are six evenings where soloists and guest conductors will play major classical with the orchestra.

It is a perfect time to spend an evening in French Riviera. The palace’s grandeur, the exquisite music, and the beauty of the evening sky will not only enchant everyone. It will leave an everlasting mark on those who are present.
