Led by Spanish conductor David Giménez, this year's festivities feature star Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins—a rare talent equally at home in classical and popular repertoire—as well as the prestigious RAI National Symphony Orchestra, the tremendous Turin-based Coro Maghini under Claudio Chiavazza, and stupendous solos with clarinetist Enrico Maria Baroni and violinist Alessandro Milani!
