A German school choir in Venice

Regensburg school choir in Venice

ABOVE: A girls' choir from Regensburg, Germany.

Cheryl was walking near Venice's San Giacomo di Rialto Church a few weeks ago when she came across a group of girls in floral dresses who were getting ready for a street concert (or perhaps we should say an "arcade concert," since the girls had gathered under the arches around the square). 

Cheryl asked about the choir's provenance and was told only that it was a school choir from Regensburg, Germany.

We've put together a short video with highlights of the choir's performance, including a shot of a dog who accompanied the group. (The dog was one of three Chihuahuas in baskets who guarded the girls' backpacks, handbags, and other possessions during the show.)

why are a lot of them barefoot?

Beats me, but I hope they watched where they were stepping: In Venice, there are plenty of dogs trotting around without leashes.
