SCS Touring choir performs at Chiesa di Santa Caterina Duomo in Taormina at 8 pm on June 28

The SCS Touring Choir performance debut on their 2009 Incantato Performance Tour is at the church of Santa Caterina in the picturesque medieval town of Taormina in Sicily.
The 43 singers directed by Mrs. Arlene Jacobs and accompanied by Mrs. Kathy Reichenberger present a repertoire of classical and modern works from European and American composers such as Palestrina, Ravel, Haydn and Lauridsen. The will also premier Dorn Younger's work "Brahm's Lullaby" internationally. The concert starts at 8 pm.
The beautiful church was consecrated to St. Catherine of Alexandria (exact consecration date unknown); it is thought that it may have been built in the mid-17th century. It sits on a piazza that abuts the highest point of the town's main street, Corso Umberto I. Within its severely dignified exterior are baroque detailing and a trussed wood-beamed ceiling. We hope you enjoy the few impressions from Taormina and updates on the first concert abroad will follow later today.
