While we were in Veroli on Tuesday I noticed a poster on a shop door advertising a concert at the church that night. I really wanted to go and listen to some Christmas music... Z took a little more convincing. But we did venture out again last night and I was so glad we did! It turns out it was a middle school concert with student voices and band/orchestra instruments. The songs were all ones that we recognized - mostly in Italian, but some in English too.
Here was the run down for the evening:
Deck the Halls
Jingle Bell Rock
Angels we Have Heard on High
We wish you a Merry Christmas
Oh Happy Day...
And a happy day it was! I'm going to try and attach some of the video... don't watch it if you have a weak stomach as it is a wee bit bouncy!
