2023 Salento Vocal Experience
Share your gift of song in the Salento region of Puglia, Italy
OUR JOURNEY BEGINS within the historic walls of Lecce, in the heart of Puglia, where we settle into our home for the week. Over the next seven days, we will sing together and explore typical Italian music styles with local experts while enjoying the culture, history, and especially the cuisine of the Salento region. You will truly learn to appreciate the rhythm of Italy through music (and food)!
Resonate Tours has developed this tailored experience for individual vocal musicians to share music while exploring Italy and eating amazing cuisine. We explore the streets, countryside, and coastline of this beautiful country while experiencing its culture and enjoying music with new friends. You can expect more than a standard group tour— uncommon adventures await. Make music every day, meet local friends, go off the beaten path, and immerse yourself in the culture. Collaborations with local musicians and experts will connect you with uniquely Italian music and give the opportunity to learn and grow with your fellow musicians.
The Salento Vocal Experience connects you with Italian music and introduces you to the rich Salentino history, culture, and food. The tour intersperses singing with a curated culinary experience and local activities in Lecce and the surrounding region. Everyday you will sing, working on a small repertoire of music of different historical Italian styles. Throughout the week, you will work with local musicians and experts of the various styles to grow both in your understanding and performance of that style. The week will finish with a casual recital where we can enjoying singing through the repertoire the group has learned. Of course, you will also eat some of the best food of your life, enjoying local specialties with plenty of wine!
For those who haven't had quite enough of Puglia, join us in the beautiful cliffside town of Polignano a Mare on the Adriatic Sea. It's a perfect spot to relax in a cafe, enjoy a gelato and explore the streets and grottos overlooking the deep blue sea. A favorite location for Italian visitors, Polignano is a perfect spot to breathe and relax after your musical experience.
