Queenswood Musicians enjoy sensational Tuscan tour
Tuesday 3 November 2015
The Queenswood Music tour of Tuscany during the October half term was a tremendous success.
Forty singers and instrumentalists spent five days immersing themselves in the rich cultural heritage of Florence, Pisa and San Gimignano. They performed concerts in stunning venues, including the Cattedrale di San Zeno in Pistoia and St Mark’s English Church in Florence.
In their free time they visited Lucca, birthplace of Puccini, and even got the chance to cook their own gourmet four-course meal in a sumptuous Lucchese villa.
A full report will follow, but in the meantime we present a video of the exceptional Pistoia concert, described by our Director of Music, Jonathan Dobson, as the best of his entire career.
