Oursounds is the title of the 6th edition of the Chigiana International Festival & Summer Academy: a return to the roots of the Chigiana tradition, looking to the future, starting with the meaning of sound and musical creation that is born during the most difficult moments endured by humanity. Running until September 3, the festival features 3 sections, 18 live events and 22 shows from the archives of the Accademia Chigiana, which will be broadcast digitally for the first time.

The section Online From the Archive, is divided into two programs: Opera Online, dedicated to the historical recordings of musical theatre works staged by the Accademia Chigiana, with 6 titles in the program; Legends Online, dedicated to symphonic, chamber and traditional music concerts, performed in the last three years and never before broadcast, which can be viewed on the Accademia Chigiana YouTube channel.
