Dear friends,

I am pleased to let you know that I have agreed to lead the 2016 Passion of Italy festival in Rome. After the great success of the festival in Barcelona I am eager to come together again with KI to create extraordinary shared singing experiences that build musical and personal connections.

I invite you to share the power of choral music in this city that resonates with so much of the music we love. I plan to shape a program that will be a diverse collection of pieces and one that will be well suited to the participating singers. It is always one of my favorite parts of this process-- shaping a program that fits the time, location and context and the various strengths and interests of the participating ensembles. I am thrilled about this opportunity and hope to have a chance to make music with you and your singers.

In addition to our work as a festival choir there will be opportunities for individual concerts, immersion in the great history of Rome, engaging sightseeing and the camaraderie unique to performing with peers in the greatest of venues.

You can choose to visit Florence as well as Venice so that you can visit three of the world’s greatest cities on the one tour.

I look forward to further dialogue with you as you consider this invitation.
