Wednesday, March 9, 2011: Perugia, Art Monastery, Master Classes, and Concert

The University of South Carolina Concert Choir, Friends, and Family have a very busy day ahead of them.
After departing the hotel this morning, the travelers head to Perugia for a guided city tour. Perugia is the capital city of Umbria and most well known for its artistic culture. The famous Renaissance painter Raphael trained under Perugian artist Pietro “Perugino” Vannucci and produced five paintings and one fresco during his time in the city.
Following the completion of their Perugian tour, the group continues to the Art Monastery in the town of Labro where they will enjoy a tour of the site, with lessons on creativity through monastic practice, before taking part in a pizza-making workshop and lunch. The University of South Carolina Music Department faculty will then present special master classes at 4:30PM at the Parco della Musica, a branch of the world famous Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia.
The group then transfers to Rieti where they will be met with a special reception from the Mayor before preparing for this evening’s highlight performance.
The University of South Carolina Concert Choir performs at il Teatro Flavio Vespasiano in Rieti at 9:00PM.
