Tuscany & Umbria Music Tours
Perform Concerts in Beautiful Churches and Squares in Tuscany and Umbria
Countless stunning hill towns all over Tuscany and Umbria with enclosed squares, churches and cathedrals ideal for concerts.
Tuscany and Umbria are very popular with all types of group. Bands, orchestras and choirs work well in piazzas whilst sacred and classical music groups (usually choirs and orchestras) work particularly well in churches and cathedrals. We are also able to arrange participation in Mass for choirs in prestigious Basilicas, such as the Basilica of St Francis in Assisi and occasionally St Peter’s in Rome for those willing to travel a bit further.
Concerts in squares take place in the summer months when there is an appreciative audience, the area being such a popular tourist attraction. Indoor concerts can be arranged throughout the year.
Local festivals are another possibility. Many of our concerts are part of a series of concerts organised by local cultural organisations and have substantial publicity behind them. These attract regular music lovers together with the many tourists.
