Singing week with Susi Huber, October 8 - 31, 2003

Together with the ad hoc choir of Susi Huber, the 'Susians', we experienced romantic Venice. Musically, these days were mainly dedicated to Mozart's Nocturnos. Our rehearsal place with wonderful acoustics was the sacristy of the San Geremia church at the Canale Grande.

On walks in Venice we walked in the footsteps of Tintoretto *), Tiepolo **) and Titian ***). Excursions took us to Burano and Torcello, where we were impressed by the Romanesque church.
