Univ. of Wisconsin Eau Claire Marching Band in Rome

Give your marching band the chance to participate in one of the world's most famous parades, held in one of the world's oldest and most historic cities!

classical architectureOnce you arrive in Rome meet up with your tour guide and travel to Florence. Once in Florence visit Piazza del Campo, the Church of Santa Croce and Piazza della Signoria. On the fourth day, your group will head to Rome and visit Piazza Navona and enjoy the New Year's Eve festivities. On New Year's Day, prepare to participate in the Processional March and perform in St. Peter's Square prior to and following Pope Benedict's mass. The next day will consist of visits to the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Cathedral. On your final day, enjoy a walking tour with stops at the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum and the Colosseum.

What's that? Your musical group is not a marching band, but you'd still love to have them see this amazing parade and also get some performance time in of their own? NO PROBLEM! Just contact us and we can arrange things so that your Orchestra, Choir or Concert Band can be in Rome to witness this event, and we will set up special performances for them outside of the parade (which is only for marching bands).

"Our trip to Rome, Florence, and Athens, coordinated by MUSIC FESTIVALS & TOURS was marvelous in every way. I was amazed at how such a complicated trip with 165 musicians traveling with an immense collection of marching band instruments and equipment was handled so smoothly. These people are truly pros at international travel and customer service. They allowed us enormous flexibility to design our own tour then they planned a meticulous itinerary based on our needs. MUSIC FESTIVALS & TOURS not only obtained all our performance permits and communicated with Vatican officials on our behalf but was also able to negotiate with vendors and carriers saving us a substantial amount of money. I can't imagine any other company would have made the extraordinary efforts to see that we were so well taken care of. I give MUSIC FESTIVALS & TOURS my highest recommendation and whole-hearted thanks for a magnificent trip!"
