Photos from our Dante Alighieri Celebratory Concert

Thank you all for coming to our Dante Alighieri Celebratory Concert last night, generously sponsored by the Italian Embassy in Wellington. It was a wonderful evening with beautiful music and singing with Elizabeth Mandeno, Chris McRae, Thomas Roshol, David Kelly and Luca Manghi. Here are some photos by Gianni Flego.

After the concert the public joined us for an Italian aperitivo, and the Honorary Consul for Italy in Auckland, Lindsey Jones, made a toast to also celebrate Italian Republic Day.   

See you at our next event!
