Continuo Arts Symphonic Chorus

Italy Unlocked | A Musical, Cultural, & Arts Experience for the Ages

Led by Candace Wicke, DMA: Conductor

9-Day Performance Tour to Italy | July 11–19, 2023


Continuo Arts Symphonic ChorusDear Friends,

Of the many journeys we have experienced together over the last fifteen years, I cannot be more pleased and excited to present “Italy Unlocked” to each of you. Whether you are a founding member, a new member, a collaborating choir or one of our singing friends joining us from across the country, this will be a monumental benchmark in all of our lives; as well as in the lives of our family members that accompany us.

On this tour, the signature musical selection is “Missa Festiva” by John Leavitt, composed for Treble (Children) and SATB (Youth & Adult) voices. There will also be other individual musical selections included in our repertoire. On-line rehearsal guides will be available and for those joining us from across the country, you may zoom into the rehearsals at Continuo Arts.

After the challenges we have all faced over the past two years as well as the recent and tragic turmoil in Ukraine, there has never been a more timely call or critical need for musical ambassadors who bring hope, inspiration, and music to the world; evidenced by the invitation on day eight!

Incredulously, I’ll close by quoting Eminem, “You better lose yourself in the music, the moment. You own it, you better never let it go. You only get one shot, do not miss your chance, this opportunity comes once in a lifetime.” Here’s to sharing it with you!
