Gospel in Lucignano, Part 1

One of the great things that happens here in Tuscany at Christmas is the gospel festival.  Some one organizes it and brings over a number of gospel groups from America.  I really enjoy going to it since many of the songs performed are songs that I heard at church while growing up.  The events are always well attended.

We made plans to meet our friends George and Jules, Dinah and Allen in Lucignano for dinner first and then to the concert.

From the end, Dinah leaning forward, her husband Allen, Jules, George with his head turned away from the camera and Ben’s hands.

 

Teatro Rosini is very intimate.  (a nice way of saying TINY!)  We only got seats because Ben and I went over several days earlier and made reservations. 

 

Look for part 2, the performers.
