For Immediate Release
Oct. 12, 1999

Abilene Christian University's Music Department plans to tour Italy in March 2000.

Dr. Marion Cawood's foreign language diction classes are learning Italian and wanted to go to Italy - Cawood made that happen.

On March 9-20, students from ACU's Music Department will travel to cities all over Italy, including Milan, Verona, Venice, Florence, Pisa, San Gimignano, Sienna, Rome, Naples, Caserta, Pompeii and Sorrento.

"This is a motivational trip in the world of language," Cawood said. "These students will hear Italian around them all day long."

The twelve-day trip costs $1,611 and includes visits to the La Scala Opera House, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, a Renaissance art and history lecture, St. Francis of Assisi Basilica, Vatican City and more.

"Some of these students want to be classical music performers, and they have to have a good working knowledge of Italian, French, and German in their profession," Cawood said. "This trip is a price the students can afford, and it will give them a learning spurt to be in Italy twelve days."

Currently 20 people have signed up. Costs will be reduced if there are 40 people. For more information contact Cawood at (915) 674-2196.
