Italy

When you walk the streets of Rome, you’ll understand why it has been the center of globally influential art, architecture, and culture for nearly 3,000 years.  Ancient ruins such as the Forum and the Pantheon evoke the power of the former Roman Empire. Walk through the Coliseum and imagine what it was like to be a spectator—or a gladiator. Spend time gazing up at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, marvel at the treasures in the Vatican Museum and throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain and make a wish. In enchanting Florence, walk the Ponte Vecchio and retrace the steps of Dante.  Visit the Galleria dell’Accademia to see Michelangelo’s David and the Museo degli Strumenti Musicali (The Museum of Instruments).  Travel the canals of Venice on a gondola and see the famous leaning Tower of Pisa. In Italy, visitors can be sure of three things: there will be something from the past to learn about, there will be something new going on to fire your imagination, and you’ll probably be a short walk from one of the greatest meals of your life.  Hundreds of beautiful cathedrals and churches and public spaces provide limitless performance opportunities in astounding settings made even more special by Italy’s prominent role in more than seven centuries of music history.  Arrangements may be made for festival competitions, exchange performances with local organizations, and concert collaborations.
