Musical Traditions of Italy – Live and on Film! at the KiMo. Headlining this gala musical event is our own nationally-acclaimed New Mexico Symphonic Chorus under the direction of Roger Melone with a fabulous slate of Italian opera choral selections and a surprise offering to close out the show – and bring down the house! Enjoy fun and colorful traditional Italian folk dance performed by another of our state’s renowned talents, Keshet Dance Company. Feast your eyes and ears on a very special film greeting sent to us in friendship by the foremost Italian men’s choir, the Coro Illersberg di Trieste. And there’s more... in this not-to-be-missed opening celebration. Arrive early to explore the lobby exhibits and enjoy a glass of wine (cash bar) hosted by yet another New Mexico award winner, Casa Rondena Winery.

Gala Reception at the Hotel Andaluz. Join us in the ballroom of Albuquerque’s only 4 Diamond AAA boutique hotel, for a mouth-watering array of antipasti e dolci, superb Antinori wines and live classical Italian melodies performed by the always-stellar Eleganza String Quartet. Enjoy a fabulous art show of the paintings and sculptures of the festival’s first-ever Director-in-Residence and guest of honor, Demetrio Casile. Meet Demetrio. Mix and mingle. Relax and enjoy the sights, sounds and flavors of an elegant and unforgettable evening, Italian style!
