Concert Choir immersed in Italian musical history and tradition

A first-ever European tour to Rome, Venice and Florence March 16-24 gave North Central’s Concert Choir an immersion in musical history and tradition. In addition to singing in world-renowned cathedrals, like St. Peter’s Basilica at Vatican City in Rome and St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the choir visited Cremona, home of the Stradivarius violin, and Florence. “The whole experience was geared to music students and so it was very special for us,” says Professor of Music Jeordano Martínez, director of the Concert Choir.
