On 16th July, a brand new format, the Monaco Red Cross Summer Concert
The Monaco Red Cross Summer Concert with pop jazz singer Jamie Cullum on 16th July on Place du Casino
In the presence of HSH Prince Albert II, President of the Monaco Red Cross, this first-ever summer concert will be a landmark date. Place du Casino has reconnected with its 19th century-designed architecture to return this legendary location to visitors and host its first ever major public event on 16th July in support of the actions of the Monaco Red Cross and to celebrate the return to normal life.
After the 71st Monaco Red Cross Ball in 2019 and an interruption in 2020 due to the Covid 19 pandemic, this summer concert marks an important stage in the very concept of this annual event that is highly anticipated by both donors and the general public. A brand new format, as we come out of a very unusual year, an open-air event at the heart of the Principal
As early as 1948, when the Monegasque Red Cross was created, the principle of organising shows for its benefit was adopted. In 1957, the gala takes on its final form: it takes place in August in the Salle des Etoiles of the Monte Carlo Sporting Club and features one or several performers. The master of ceremonies is another performer, just as notorious.
Since 1989, famous works of art are offered on the evening of the Red Cross Gala. Among the artists we can name :
MORETTI, ARMAN, CESAR, VELICKOVIC, Paul JENKINS, Jean MIOTTE, Jean Daniel LORIEUX, François ARNAL, Bernard RANCILLAC, Peter KLASEN, SOSNO, NALL, ADAMI, Damien HIRST, Arnaldo POMODORO, ARCHIGUILLE, FOLON, Ernest PIGNON ERNEST, Davide BENATI, Roberto BARNI, Manolo VALDEZ, Mimo PALADINO…Jean-Michel OTHONIEL.
Every year there is a lottery drawing with prestigious prices to liven up the gala.
Since 1948, many artists have performed on the stage of the Salle des Etoiles for the Gala of the Monegasque Red Cross.
