Operavision Academy and its young artists make this pilgrimage to a place of so much history and are humbled to be even a small part of the spiritual and musical prism of genius melody, prodigious profound poetry and beauty that is Italy. Instead of just partaking the sights, and enjoying the food resplendent and unsurpassed, the wines kissed by Italian sunshine grown in a rich soil of centuries of care and love, and share this with the people so full of joy and passion, we wish also to leave a trace of our heart to remain always faithfully in Italy with our song and from our hearts, the sounds of our very souls.
Operavision Academy is giving several concerts featuring the young artists of this year’s Academy, and also some of the wonderful Italian artists who serve music so fabulously here in Italy and make their nation proud…..There we are pleased and honored to be presenting formally donations to three of the most important and historic Foundations in Italy who are some of the beloved guardians of the memories and the works of some of the Sons and Daughters of Italy who gave so prodigiously their gifts to the world. May they NEVER be forgot, and thank you to these great and worthy Foundations.
Especially thanks to Carlo Menconi and the Circolo Carrarese Amici della Lirica “A.Mercuriali” for their immense love and support of the arts and their wisdom and guidance. To Luigi Caiola, and his Tony Award Winning Production company and a great man of family, of support for the arts and theater, and of me. We would never have been able to launch in this lovely way at such a level, without your amazing support and generosity…..I love and thank you so much….
A Summer of Discovery and immersion into one of the greatest world’s to exist in the country of so much beauty and melody and great music…… One Month and Counting….
Hearts full of hope, humility and gratitude…..
