The Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale
Vienna to Venice Performance Tour
June 19–29, 2019
The Chorale recently returned from another European performance tour, this time traveling from Vienna to Venice, with many exciting singing opportunities along the way!
The 10-day tour began in Vienna, Austria, continued through Slovenia and Croatia, and concluded in Venice, Italy. Throughout the tour the group sang informally and formally at various venues such as St. Stephen's Cathedral and Esterhazy Palace in Vienna; the Basilica of Melk Abbey in Melk, Austria; the Church of the Assumption in Bled, Slovenia; and Postojna Cave in Postojna, Slovenia.
We were excited to include joint concerts en route with local choirs in Klosterneuburg, Austria; Ljubljana, Slovenia; Rovinj, Croatia; and Mirano, Italy. We always enjoy the cultural exchanges these musical collaborations provide, and we enjoyed making many international friends as we shared our love of music with the people of these beautiful countries!
