Butler Tour-Florence and Bologna Concert

Just a quick post...will put up a few more pics. Had a great concert last night in Bologna, singing our final two selections with members of the University Choir and Orchestra. Large and appreciative audience.

Spent a few hours (!) in Florence, where the architectural and sculptural beauty is quite overwhelming. And, had a huge serving of chocolate mint and nutella flavored gelato mixed together. Yum!

And we are joined by our new "Bolognese" friends for the finale


NOTE: On Sunday, March 20, at 5 pm local time (12 noon EDT) we will be singing for Mass at the Vatican. We will perform four motets in Latin, and it's supposed to be a pretty important day in the Catholic church. We've been told that the Cardinal from Rome will be in attendance this day. The Vatican website seems to have a list of events that are streamed and/or carried live via radio, if you are interested in following us.
