John Dickson’s 2020 Italy Choir Festival – gala concert in Milan, concerts in Venice – options to Florence and Rome
International travel combined with great music making has profoundly shaped my life as a professional musician and as a person.
I am grateful for the opportunity to offer you and your community of singers the possibilities of such life-enriching experiences. I have selected an area of Europe that particularly inspires me, Northern Italy. We will rehearse near Venice in the Padua area with opportunities for individual concerts and touring on Venice island. We then travel through Verona to arrive in Milan, the site of our Gala Concert. Milan is one of the great cities of history and culture and the echo of our voices will join countless others who have sung here over the past centuries.
There are touring options to Rome or elsewhere in Italy and indeed Europe. This will be the third festival I am leading for KIconcerts and I like the way they build an event like this, never losing sight of the individual choirs and choristers while still producing a well-attended gala concert on a significant scale at a fine venue in a great destination.
I hope you will consider singing with me while we explore the enchanting cities of Venice and Milan
