The Choir of the College of William and Mary and The Botetourt Chamber Singers at the Church of Santa Maria della Grazia in Lecce, Italy
The Choir of the College of William and Mary with its Director Dr. James Armstrong and Mary and The Botetourt Chamber Singers performed in ancient Greece during their summer concert tour. Highlights included a concert in Pyrgos where even the Orthodox Assistant Archbishop was in attendance and an impromptu performance held at an ancient amphitheater.
"The tour offered an unparalleled opportunity to see some of the most important sites from both Greek and Roman classical antiquity all in a very short space of time. For those students who had studied about these sites, it was a dream come true and for those who were being introduced to these sites for the first time, it was exciting and wonderfully enriching."
