Introduction and Rehearsal Week (June 27-July 1)
Ciao a tutti! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official MYO 2022 Italy tour blog! My name is Aviv, I am a tenor in this year’s tour choir, and I will be your storyteller and narrator for this epic account of our two-week-long
At 8:45 AM, breakfast was over and we were asked to meet in our chaperone groups in the lobby. During this meetup, we sang a beautiful rendition of Happy Birthday to Molly Perrone who turned 18 today! After everyone was definitely present, we boarded the buses.
The time has come, ladies and
Upon landing in Milan, we successfully reclaimed our baggage and met up with our two tour managers in the arrivals hall. The orchestra would
And so, our adventures continue! Morning broke early today in Santa Margherita, but many of us chose to sleep in as much as we could. I managed to catch a quick breakfast ten minutes before our 8:00 meeting time in the lobby of the hotel. Once there, we got a chance to
Good morning! Well, it’s actually almost midnight the next day as I write this, but we’ll pretend it’s still the morning so I can have my fun. So, good morning, and welcome back! Today was another of our long travel days as we proceeded to Tuscany and our next hotel in Montecatini
Benvenuti once again! I cannot wait to tell you all about the wonderful things we did today, so let me waste no time. Today, we visited Florence, the capital of the Tuscany region and one of the principal artistic and cultural centers of Italy. And not only did we get to experience
Man, it felt good to wake up on time this morning! I purposefully started setting my alarm ringtones to the loudest EDM tracks I could find with the goal of never missing another call time again. Let’s see if I can keep that up throughout the rest of the tour. Anyway, now
Welcome back to the action! The next two days of the tour are going to be far more relaxed than the past few, with no concerts until later in the week and lots of travel time. But that is not to say that they won’t offer the same wonderful experiences, breathtaking sights,
It’s hard to believe that we’re already over halfway through the tour. Seriously, it feels like just yesterday that we first landed in Italy. Anyway, I had one of the best sleeps of my entire life last night. The mattresses in that hotel were so comfortable! Even the breakfast spread was nice,
Ladies and gentlemen, the day has finally come. Today we embark on one of the most highly anticipated escapades of the entire tour, followed immediately by our fourth concert in the heart of Sorrento. We have a lot to talk about, so let us dispense with the formalities and get on with
Ciao again! I hope you’re ready for another day of cruising the sea, admiring stunning views, and eating lots of food. Actually, you’re just going to read about it; unfortunately we already did all that today. But hopefully you’ll feel like you were there with us as you do!The morning started out
Ready for the final leg of our trip? To be honest, I’m not even sure I was; besides the fact that I absolutely fell in love with Sorrento, I was still having difficulty coming to terms with the tour almost coming to an end. Italy is just such a magical place, and
Welcome back! Today had to be one of the greatest days we’ve had on tour. Between the sightseeing we did this morning, the amazing food, and our concert tonight, there was absolutely nothing that could make this day any better. So sit back, relax, and please enjoy the story I’m about to
And so the day has finally come: our last full day in Rome, in Italy, and on tour. The past two weeks have gone by far too quickly, and everything we’ve done up to this point seems like a bit of a whirlwind to me right now (and probably to many of
We’ve arrived, ladies and gentlemen. Today marks the end of MYO’s 2022 tour to Italy, and these will be my final words on the subject. I still have not come to terms with either of those facts. Time has flown far too quickly, and it’s incredibly unfortunate that we must leave Italy
