Singing in Rome

Last night was the culmination of hours of rehearsal time for Vincenzo and I when we were part of an International High School Choir. (We volunteered because they needed extra tenors.) The concert was presented in conjunction with the annual conference of the Mediterranean Association of International Schools that took place this week in Rome.

The performance was at St. Stephen's School on the Aventine Hill. The repertoire included:
Salve Regina from To the Mothers in Brazil by Lars Jansso
La Musica by Jay Althouse
Sing Me To Heaven by Daniel Gawthrop
Band of Angels by Andre Thomas
Fa Una Canzona by Orazio Vecchi (d. 1605)
N'kosiSikelel'i Africa (Pan African National Antem)
Freedom is Coming
