TOCCATA is Touring Italy!

Music Contact International,TOccata On Tour's selection for our tour company, is providing the air and land package for $3,401 and a land-only package for those of us who may wish to stay longer and/or use airline miles. The land-only package is $2,083. Both prices are based on a minimum of 60 persons. The 50 person price is somewhat higher. We ideally will take 32 singers (balanced SATB, 10 orchestral players and 18 tour "boosters" **.
The program from Music Contact is attached. It is a very attractive tour; for many it will be a once in a lifetime experience. The Toccata Orchestra and Chorus will perform in the Duomo in the beautiful town of Como, also in Pisa, Lucca or Siena, and then in Florence; the choral group will have a late morning concert in Parma, enroute to Florence, at the San Giovanni cathedral (next to the Duomo there) and also sing at a mass at St. Marks in Venice (where Giovanni Gabrieli provided music in the 16th century).
Four dinners are provided as are breakfasts all mornings. Many guided tours to interesting towns like Bergamo are included.
