Ciao from Italy
Filippo Salemmi conducts the Arts Academy Band during a rehearsal.
In late April, music students hosted seven students from conservatories in Italy.
The seven students hailed from conservatories including the Conservatories of Cesena, Pesaro, Fermo and Perugia, the Institutes Frezzi, Carducci Foligno and other Italian music schools. During the weeklong visit, the guests presented a recital, observed music classes, sat in on ensemble rehearsals and performed with the Arts Academy Band during the April 28 concert.
