♪ Italy’s Notes of Joy Festival – Rome, June 2015

KIconcerts: Italy's Notes of Joy Choir Festival - Rome, June 2015

An invitation to sing in the 

Rome Choir Festival!

When I was 16 years old, I had the privilege of traveling with my high school choral and instrumental ensembles to France, England and Ireland. It was a remarkable and life-changing journey.

Because of that opportunity in my youth, I learned to appreciate other cultures, to absorb the historic beauty of European cities and countryside, to make life-long friendships and to create music beyond anything I had ever experienced.

In part this is why I have accepted the invitation to lead the Notes of Joy festival - hoping to help make the same kind of opportunity available to other singers. Perhaps there is no-where better in the world to take our music than to Italy - the source of so much of our music and inspiration.

Traveling to Italy enables you to sing in glorious centuries-old cathedrals, see magnificent frescos by Michelangelo, savor the aromas of authentic Italian food, and hear the Italian language spoken - the operatic language of so many Verdi, Puccini and Mozart operas.

Join me in creating music and memories that will stay with you for a lifetime
