The children’s choir Piccolo Coro Mariele Ventre, of the Antoniano in Bologna, directed by Sabrina Simoni is flying to China for a wonderful tour, now already sold out, for the fourth consecutive year.
8 concerts will be held between the 30th December, 2018 and the 5th January,2019 – with twice the locations as last year: 6 dates at the Children’s Art Theatre in Shanghai, then in the new location of the Jiangsu Center for the Performing Arts in Nanchino, for the last 2 concerts.
At the top of the tour’s repertoire, songs from the last few editions of the Zecchino d’Oro festival, though without forgetting some of the evergreens, alternated to amusing contents and to some other more didactic ones.
Besides, a few dedications to the Italian tradition, like a new version of “Funiculì Funiculà”, and a couple of tributes to the Chinese language, with “Mo Li Hua” and “Chong Er Fei”. Moreover, for the first time in China, a cover version of Una vita in vacanza, a hit by the Bolognese band Lo Stato Sociale, with whom the Little Choir performed a duet in the 2018 edition of the Sanremo Festival, in Italy.
With this tour, the Piccolo Coro reaches a total 30 trips abroad since 1995, 14 of them under the direction of Sabrina Simoni. Among the world countries visited, China is the one with which they have set a very strong cultural exchange.
