It was the custom in the 18th century for the European intelligentsia to make The Grand Tour, meaning a culturally-oriented study tour to Italy. It was in this spirit that the FRSO musicians decided to pack their bags full of music and see what the modern equivalent of The Grand Tour might be. Join us for a seven-concert tour taking in not only the Eternal City but also the Adriatic beaches.
