“Two weeks in Italy. A transformative life experience singing with Umbrian Serenades. I laughed more than I had in many years. I cried more too – sometimes moved so deeply by the art we created, sometimes out of joy, and sometimes out of recognition that I need choral music in my life. Song is not optional. Thrilled to sing with such incredible musicians and such incredibly wonderful people. You’d think I’d have taken more photos having brought two cameras with me to Italy. But I was so busy embracing the experience, I kept forgetting the camera.”

“I have been to Italy with Umbrian Serenades since its first summer in 2006, and have experienced some of the happiest moments of my life. Extraordinary choral performing experience, extraordinary musicians to work with, extraordinary food, wine, culture, & art! You must go!”
