It is with great rejoicing that the University of Notre Dame Liturgical Choir will be embarking on a choir pilgrimage to Austria and the Czech Republic, March 4 – 12, 2016. We hope you can support us on this incredible journey as we sing at the beautiful churches and cathedrals of Salzburg, Vienna and Prague.
Our journey begins in Salzburg, we will enjoy a guided tour of the city’s sights, such as Monchsberg and Residenzplatz. As a special treat, we have received an invitation to sing for the Sunday Mass at the Salzburg Cathedral together with Salzburg Cathedral Choir.
In addition, our choir will also perform a recital at Melk Abbey. Next we will journey to Vienna, the Music Capital of the World and the city of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and Strauss! We will visit the Hofburg Palace, the House of Parliament, City Hall and the Burgtheater. Our choir will present a concert at St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna and sing for the evening Mass at St. Peter’s Church in Vienna.
Next we continue to Prague, the “City of 100 Spires” where we will visit the Charles Bridge, the Old Town, and the Prague Castle. We will present a concert at St. Nicholas Church on the Square and sing for the evening Mass at St.Vitus Cathedral in Prague.
A choir pilgrimage with us will be an especially meaningful one! We look forward to sharing our musical gifts with you during this remarkable and memorable trip
