Bel Canto Concert Choir sings in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic
In July of 2013, the Bel Canto Concert Choir embarked on a solo tour throughout central Europe. Highlights of our tour include spending July 4th on Grafenwoehr US Army Base. We performed on base and enjoyed the evening’s July 4th festivities – complete with a wonderful display of fireworks! We couldn’t think of a better way to spend Independence Day than thanking our American troops stationed overseas through song!
In the town of Eschenbach Germany, Bel Canto enjoyed performing with the Eschenbach Girl’s Choir. During rehearsal and a joint concert, Bel Canto singers taught the Girl’s Choir and their German audience how to sing “This Little Light” in English and German!
During their time in the Czech Republic, Bel Canto choristers had a unique opportunity to visit the holocaust concentration camp, Terezin. At the end of the tour, our singers chose to honor the victims by singing Hashivenu and Prayer of the Children around the memorial (pictured above).
