This annual festival of music, prose and lyrics is now finished for 2009.  You will have to return at the end of June next year to be able to enjoy the wide array of performances.  Inaugurated in 1958 by Gian Carlo Menotti it attracts a huge international cast of performers and audience alike.

An offshoot of this is a group of a cappella choral singers organised by Umbrian Serenades who bring together enthusiasts from the United States for a tour of Umbria, that includes tours of some of the towns and concerts in spectacular venues.

Sunday evening sees them performing at 7pm in the top basilica in Assisi.  I think a concert in an unforgettable location not to be missed.
