Presented in a Cabaret-like atmosphere, the event promises to deliver evocative and beautiful music that will take audiences to special destinations and cultures from around the world.
Musical Director Kevin Cotellese shares, “In true Wilton Singers fashion, The Travel Notes “itinerary” includes beautiful classic choral works such as the Ralph Vaughan Williams arrangement of “Loch Lomond,” and modern popular songs such as “Ticket to Ride” by the Beatles, “Home” by Phillip Phillips, along with Stephen Paulus stunning arrangement of “The Road Home.”
