The choir arrived at St. Ignatius Church around 7pm for rehearsal before the concert at 9pm. The choir rehearsed for an hour and a half with a half hour of rest and vesting before the concert. The concert began promptly at 9pm to a church filled with approx. 200 attendees. The concert went extremely well (see pictures and repertoire below) and received a standing ovation at the conclusion of the concert. It truly was the high point of the tour for all. The acoustics of St. Ignatius are incredible! Every piece was sung with beauty and precision.
After the concert, the choir walked to the bus and shuttled back to the hotel where some went for dinner and drinks to a local Pizzeria and others headed to bed in preparation of their 6:30am departure for Fiumicino Airport on Sunday.
A wonderful tour. Thanks to so many who helped us get to where we needed to be and all those who have supported us along the way! See you soon at the Mission on Sunday!
