From the River to the Stage: Syrinx’s Musical Journey with the I Musici orchestra !

The syrinx, which is the essential organ that allows birds to sing and produce their delightful melodies, shares its name with a character from Greek mythology. According to the legend, the nymph Syrinx was pursued by Pan, the god of the wild, and was transformed into a reed to escape him. Pan then used this reed to make his famous flute, which has been associated with nature and music ever since…
