Dante Musica Viva Choir
The Dante Musica Viva was formed under the direction of Francesco Sofo in early 2005. It has grown tremendously since then. The DMV is made up of members of the Dante Alighieri Society of Canberra, whose love of Italian language and music has led them to share this passion with others through song. The DMV is supported by members of Canberra’s Mandolin Orchestra and other local musicians, led by musical director Francesco Sofo, and jointly conducted by Francesco Sofo and Saverio Palma. The choir sings all types of Italian music, ranging from traditional folk pieces to opera arias.
