Marymount students are offered opportunities to be “citizens of the world.” During spring break, Marymount Singers, under the musical direction of Mario Dell’Olio, will perform in Rome at both St. Peter’s Basilica and at Sant’Agnese in Agone, sharing their talents with others in “contributing to the world culture of music and sending a message of unity through music,” says Mr. Dell’Olio.
In their annual travels, the Singers not only perform, but also engage in local history and culture. In Rome, they plan to visit the Vatican museum, the Roman forum, the Colosseum, the Trevi fountain, and the Spanish steps as well as connecting with students at Marymount International School. After a few days in Rome, the group travels southward to Sorrento, Naples, Pompeii, and Capri.
For many students this trip is a capstone of their experience with the chorus. In addition to preparing and performing for an international audience, the trip makes tangible connections between Marymount students and the larger world.
