Congratulations to our students and faculty on their Venetian debut!

Students and faculty arrived on June 23rd for a recital of a lifetime by water bus (vaporetto), water taxi, train and on foot through the canals and streets of Venice at the Santa Maria della Pieta (Vivaldi’s church). The Pieta hosted a gathering of family and friends to celebrate an early evening of music, music education and our namesake Antonio Vivaldi. Tourists and locals joined the audience to enjoy our students’ performances along with faculty performances that included pieces from an Italian favorite, Cinema Paradiso.

Vivaldi’s Church – performance

Vivaldi, the famous Venetian composer and master of violin, wrote countless compositions during his time as a music educator at the Santa Maria della Pieta from 1703-1740. While rising to the rank of concertmaster, Vivaldi directed the children’s choir and all-girls orchestra through the church’s orphanage at the time, the Ospedale della Pieta. Established in the fourteenth century, the Ospedale now operates as the Instituto Provinciale Per L’Infanzia, a charitable institution that provides education and assists children and mothers in need. All proceeds from our recital benefited this charity for children and women.
