December 8th, 2009 – Day Eight

December 8, 2009

Shhhhhhh.  Close your eyes.  Hold my arm while we walk up the steps and through the door.  Keep your eyes closed until I tell you, okay?  We’re the first to arrive for the concert…. are you ready?  All right, open your eyes…..

“Where are we,” you ask – “in Rome, London, Paris?”  No, guess again where this noble Italian Renaissance Basilica might be.  Yes, believe it or not, we are in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Modeled after St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, it features one of the largest copper domes in the world, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Well the Basilica is incredible, the Christmas decorations lovely, but what are we here for?  Oh yes, the concert:

Tickets are $15 – $25 and are selling quickly.

Listen to a sample of the evening’s concert here

I have my tickets – I hope to see you there!

    Too far to go, but I absolutely love the pictures and wish I could be there! Enjoy

    You are too funny, seachanges…. crossing that big ocean would be quite a trip just for a concert! I’ll let you know how it was. Thanks.

    When this post came up, it simply took my breath away. Amazing.

    The concert was incredible, and the Basilica was GORGEOUS. It was a very good time, and the audience even got to sing along. Lots of fun.
