Choir spokesman Tim Blades said: “We were fortunate to perform in some of the most glorious buildings imaginable.

“We will certainly remember the acoustics, art work and Italian hospitality with great fondness and the sunshine and gelato even longer,’’ joked Tim.

“But we are now really looking forward to performing for our home audience back here in Market Harborough.”The 'Music for a Summer Evening' concert will raise funds for the Friends of St Dionysius.

The show will feature a wide range of sacred and secular music the choir recently performed on their tour of beautiful Tuscany.
