“We are truly delighted to have had our first experience with Umbrian Serenades. Our sense of expectation grew as we prepared the repertoire before leaving for Italy. On arrival, we were immediately welcomed into the “family” of Serenaders – a group of enthusiastic, caring people, committed to making the finest choral music in an atmosphere of warmth and friendship. Dedicated rehearsal sessions were mixed with great camaraderie in beautiful Spoleto. We experienced Italian culture first hand, enjoying a rich variety of local food and wine, combined with historical insights at every turn. This culminated in some memorable concerts in beautiful local venues. What a great musical treat!! Thank you to Umbrian Serenades.”

“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.”
Alan, Baritone, Danbury, CT
“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!”
BILL, Tenor, Philadelphia , PA
“As a first time participant in the program, this was the trip of a lifetime. The food, the music, the Umbrian countryside, and the wonderful new singing friends I met exceeded all of my expectations. Umbria is a special place that I want to come back to.”
