White voices choir in airport
A new event for travellers at Fiumicino Airport, enchanted by the opera performances held by the Scuola di Canto Corale [Choral Singing School] of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma.

A day of music and fun at Leonardo da Vinci Airport, which today hosted two opera performances as part of Airport Opera Live, the cycle of exhibitions organised by Aeroporti di Roma in partnership with the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma.

The "Coro di Voci Bianche" choir, made up of sixty children from the Scuola di Canto Corale, entertained passengers departing from Boarding Area E for international flights and travellers to domestic and European destinations at Boarding Area B, with a double concert lasting twenty minutes each, signing “Concert in the Chicken Coop” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, “Bestial Counterpoint” by Adriano Banchieri and “Gospel Magnificat” by Robert Ray, directed by Alberto De Sanctis.

Many travellers, impressed by the vocal qualities of the young performers, stopped to capture the exhibition. The event is one of the many initiatives with which Aeroporti di Roma proposes to improve the quality of time spent by passengers at the airport, where previews are held of the major shows scheduled in the Capital.
