In Italy, change is always for the better, especially when it comes to the concerts

We just received news that there has been a change in venue during the UGA Chamber Choir's special appearance for the Ultrapadum Festival because of an Italian political meeting. The Sale Comunale Polivalente is now needed for a political meeting and this results in a special upgrade to a prime concert venue.

The recital that was to be held in the Sala Comunale in Vigguzolo is now relocated to the Oratorio Di San Francesco in the charming town of Pontecurone at 6 pm on Saturday, May 30. The Festival Director confirmed advised us of the venue change on Tuesday and also mentioned how happy your local contact, Prof. Masciadri is with this change as he is familiar with this venue already. And we are sure you will like singing in this beautiful church too!

The Oratorio Di San Francesco was built in the early 17th century and contains the original choir stalls still. It holds up to 100 people and with over 300 invitations being sent out - and now in a revised version - the UGA Chamber Choir may well be performing to a full house in the opening concert for this unique international choral festival in the Pavia region of Italy.
