Special concert at Abbey Church on March 8 to preview Italian tour

Canta Italia! will be presented by the Saint Leo Singers International at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 8, in the Saint Leo Abbey Church. This group is drawn from student singing groups and the faculty-staff choir, and is the first ensemble from Saint Leo that will be going on an international performance tour. During the week of March 13, which is Spring Break for the University Campus population, the group will be in Italy and perform for local audiences in churches in Rome, Florence, and Milan. The concert is a preview of the tour for local audiences. The program features selections expressing “The Many Faces of Love,” including sacred music honoring God’s love, love for family, romantic love, and love for humanity. The public is invited and admission is free. Suggested donations of $10 will go to support the growing music program.

The university is grateful to the Monks of Saint Leo for hosting this performance, and to Mr. Richard Behnke for his financial gift in support of the tour.
