The Walla Walla Valley Academy Orchestra embarked on a customized, nine-day tour throughout Italy as part of the American Celebration of Music. Read what director, Ben Gish, had to say about his experience:


"Two previous excellent trips (Austria and New York City) is what influenced me to partner with Music Celebrations again. My “MCI Team” is very good!! You helped me through all the hurdles. Thank you so much! The hotels in Italy were very nice, as were the arranged meals. Our Italian Tour Escort did a great job. The sightseeing was very good. The highlights were all four (4) performances. Audiences were large and responsive. The clinic with Marco Fracassi was a special treat. The kids loved him. I would absolutely serve as a reference and would recommend MCI to any of my colleagues."
