“I started La RosaWorks to keep alive the very special emotions I had on my first trip to my ancestral home land. I wanted to share what I learned, what I saw, and what I felt on that trip. Sicily is a treasure of an island, both beautiful and complex. Over time I have created tours for hundreds of people in groups of friends and families, and in themed tours of all sizes. In 2012, I organized a concert tour in Sicily for the New York Choral Society. It was an amazing adventure that captivated the members and engaged the Sicilians. My aim is to lead curious travelers to the island and highlight its particularly rich offerings – music, art, literature, history and, oh, that food and wine!” KAREN LA ROSA of La RosaWorks, Sicily Cultural Coordinator for SERENADES Choral Travel in 2019 and 2020.
