This video features photos from our Italy inspection tour. The Los Angeles Youth Orchestra 2017 Italy Tour begins in Venice, then goes to the heart of violin-making in the town of Cremona where the orchestra has its first performance. From there, we travel to Verona, Monticatini (2nd performance), Lucca, and Florence. A trip through Tuscany takes us to Medieval city of Siena and then into the remote country side to Sant' Antimo, a Benedictine monastery where we will hear plain chant sung at Vespers. Finally, we arrive in Rome for sightseeing and a final performance in St. Agnes chapel in the Piazza Navona, directly across from Bernini's famous Fountain of the Four Rivers.
