Ars & Amici: 2017 trip to Italy — Lake Como

Daniela Anderson of Alpine Adventure Agency planned our May 2017 music trip to Italy focusing on the Lake Como region. From our home base at a lake-side hotel, we’ll take day trips in our private coach to Como, Lugano, Menaggio, Lenno, Laglio, and more, plus a special scenic railway trip from St Moritz to Tirano. We’ll visit Bellagio as well (George Clooney hasn’t yet invited us to sing for him). In addition to masses in several beautiful churches, we will present concerts on our own and in collaboration with local ensembles.

Our program includes sacred and secular choral works by Monteverdi, Verdelot, Croce, Palestrina and others; instrumental works feature canzone by Priuli, Mortaro and Gussago in addition to accompanied songs by d’India and Gagliano.

This is a self-funded trip; fees include hotels (and most meals), group transportation, local walking tours and visits to historical places, cooking demonstrations and more. Rates are per person/double occupancy; single rooms available at a surcharge.

Non-performing friends are invited to join our adventure. Please contact Ars & Amici’s program director, Sheila Beardslee, sheilabb [at] verizon [dot] net.
