The tour ended in beautiful Verona, not that there was much opportunity to enjoy our last day in Italy; we arrived by bus 3 hours before the concert!

The “Spanish” program; Albeniz, Rimski-Korsakov, Debussy and Ravel was a polished success and the orchestra played an encore, Prokofiev’s “Death of Tybalt.”

Most of us didn’t bother with unpacking, re-arranging or even opening suitcases. After the concert suitcases went by truck to the airport in Milano: an amazing pile!

In another 2 hours, the last bus ride to Milano, the flight home, then 5 days to get our feet on the ground before going back to work.

 End of tour!!!
