Italy Tour Wrap-Up

all seasons in one day 101 °F

What a fantastic trip! I just returned from a 10-day tour of Italy with the Voice of Chicago ensemble of the Chicago Children's Choir. We had many stellar performances, intercultural exchanges, and life-changing moments. Here are some of the highlights through my photographs:

First lunch in Italy!

Touring Modena, Italy:

Meeting an Italian immigrant, Abrahim, from Nigeria:

Visiting Dante Allegri's tomb:

Meeting new friends from the Cometa school was made easy through my knowledge of two years of Italian language:

Amazing boat tour of Lago Como!

Cathedral in Bologna:

Evening photoshoot!

The Voice of Chicago bass section!

On our last full day in the country, we performed at the Ravello Festival which is located on the side of a huge mountain cliff overlooking the breathtaking scenery of the Amalfi Coast. It was truly the most magical location at which I have ever performed.

So although it did have its ups and downs, it was overall an enjoyable tour! You can't beat traveling with the Chicago Children's Choir!

Good birding!
