Inspiring, well-attended performances around this spectacular Italian lake PLUS the opportunity to perform at Italy's largest theme park!

Lake Garda is the largest of the Italian lakes and a favourite for school groups. There are a number of small, lively villages surrounding the lake, which draw in excellent audiences, bringing the best out of your young musicians. A number of outdoor venues prove very popular with the many tourists in the area and it is also possible to perform in local schools. We can even arrange for you to perform as part of a music festival at Italy's largest theme park, Gardaland! The beautiful, historic city of Verona is also within easy reach for a day trip and offers a number of alternative performance venues.
