CONCERT CHOIR IN ITALY

VEMIRO- Italian tour performance video

Here are some videos of the Concert Choir performing in Italy as part of the AMERICAN CELEBRATION OF MUSIC IN ITALY. Students performed and/or toured in the following cities: Rome, Montecatini, Florence, Siena, Venice, Pisa and Milan. The performance tour was organized by Music Celebrations International.

QUI SEDES by James Fritschel- This performance takes place at the St. Stefano Church in Florence, Italy. The reason the choir is not wearing their robes is that on that performance day only Show Choir was supposed to perform. But the audience wanted to hear more, so the Concert Choir got up after Show Choir was finished and sang a few numbers.



DEEP RIVER by Harry T. Burleigh- This is one of the most beautiful Negro Spirituals ever written and is a prime example of American music at its best. What an honor it was to perform this little gem for the people of Italy. This performance takes place at S. Maria in Formosa, Venice. The people who ran this church were some of the very nicest people we met while in Italy.
