There have been many collaborations with important conductors and exceptional soloists, including the Oscar winner Luis Bacalov, Chief Executive Officer from 2005 to 2017, e Luigi Piovano, musical director from 2012 to 2017, and today Chief Conductor.

The Magna Grecia Orchestra performs about 90 concerts a year, and is engaged in tours in Italy and abroad, which in recent years have led to performances in Japan, Germany, Austria, France, Switzerland, Mexico, Spain and the Emirates. Arabi, Montenegro, Albania, Greece. There were also numerous national and international television coverage.

The Magna Grecia Orchestra programs its season in Taranto at the Orfeo Theater and the Fusco Theater, in Matera in the Cava del Sole Auditorium.
