Assumption Chorale Performs, Explores and Learns in Tour of Central Europe
2016 Jun 6
From May 9-16, the Assumption College Chorale ensemble traveled to Prague, Vienna and Salzburg to perform in historic churches and cathedrals and learn about the history of European politics and art.
During the trip, students had the opportunity to sing during High Mass at the Bergheim Parish Church in Salzburg; performed a recital at St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna; held an impromptu performance at the Melk Abbey in Melk; and sang at the Church of Our Lady in Prague. The group also enjoyed guided tours of each city.
"We teach a great deal of political history and art history during these trips," Prof. Michelle Graveline, Ph.D, the Chorale's director, said, "The students get an educational experience they won't soon forget," she said.
