Thank you to the teachers and students in Calabria and Sicily for making the first performances of the 2014-2015 Roadshow such a success – the seconds leading up to the debut at the Liceo “Volta” are here, and this was the school’s homepage  in the days leading up to the debut. The tour continues with shows in Spain in the first week of November. I look forward to meeting you and your students this academic year!
