Rome: Sant' Agnese in Agone filled with people - USC Concert Choir performs to another full house

300+ excited people in the audience, no places to sit and hardly anywhere to stand: Another full house for USC, this was the situation in the beautiful church of Sant' Agnese in Agone at Piazza Navona in Rome at 6 pm on Thursday, March 10.
What a wonderful greeting for the University of South Carolina Concert Choir on their third and final formal during their 2011 Incantato Italy Tour. The only challenge to overcome for the singers under the direction of Dr. Larry Wyatt was to squeeze by their very excited audience to take their place in front of the altar.
"Songs for the Spirit" is the concert theme for the 2011 USC Italy and the performance features traditional and contemporary sacred works from a wide range of composers including selections from two masses. A unique feature of the concerts are that several faculty members including organist Dr. William Bates and Dr. Robert Pruzin (French Horn) who were audience favorites in Rieti on Wednesday night perform together with the singers.
