Via Monteverdi by Joan Catoni Conlon

Last spring, KIConcerts (Colorado Springs, Colo.) asked me to lead a choir tour to Italy that would focus on the cities where Claudio Monteverdi
(1567-1643) wrote: Cremona, Mantua, and Venice. Because Monteverdi’s music is so endlessly fascinating, the prospect seemed too exciting to pass up. This tour, called Via Monteverdi, will become a reality in May 2015,
expanded by two additional performances in Rome, including a service at St. Peter’s Basilica. The choir of over 40 includes the singers of Canzonetta, a small Seattle ensemble directed by Roger Nelson, that will perform a few pieces on its own in each concert.
