MuSa (“Music at Sapienza”) is Sapienza’s most prominent music and entertainment organisation. It was established in 2006 and regularly presents a rich calendar of concerts and events.

Student orchestras, choirs and instrumental groups performing a vast range of musical genres hold concerts throughout the year at both formal and ceremonial occasions, inaugurations, conferences, seminars and other public events. The chamber groups regularly perform at seasonal concerts.

MuSA includes:

Classical MuSa - orchestra and chamber music devoted to a repertoire generally defined as ‘Classical’ (Director: Maestro Francesco Vizioli);

MuSa Jazz - band and solo Jazz musicians performing both Afro-American and Italian repertoire, as well as covers of international pop songs (Director: Maestro Silverio Cortesi);

MuSa Choir - vocal groups peforming polyphonic and choral music (Directors: Prof. Paolo Camiz and Maestro Giorgio Monari).

MuSa membership is open to all students and university staff.
