Choral Concert in the Italian Embassy

For our April Special Event, Italian Ambassador Elio Menzione invited WIB members and their partners to the Italian embassy for a very special concert as WIB’s very own international choir, conducted by Barbara Leifer, presented a selection of pieces from its growing repertoire to enthusiastic applause.

The Italian Foreign Service Partners’ Choir under the conductorship of Nancy Romano also performed, and received an equally warm reception. The evening was rounded off by a wonderful Italian buffet at which singers and audience met and mingled in the splendid framework of the embassy’s premises.
