Club Tours annouces new venture
Club Tours Agentur, The Czech Republic’s finest organizer of choral tour programs, is pleased to announce the creation of MUSICA SEMPER VIVA, a new and exciting choral tour opportunity for singers.
For 13 years, the Agency sponsored a very successful program, SING TO THE LORD, which provided an opportunity for singers to travel to Prague, form a choir, engage in an intensive daily rehearsal schedule, and then travel to outlying communities to sing. Past tours have given performances in Budapest, Salzburg, Vienna, Munich, Berlin, Leipzig, Prague, and a number of smaller communities in the Czech Republic.
When this program came to a close at the conclusion of the 2014, Club Tours President, Michal Svarc, believed that there continued to be a market for a program which recruits singers from various communities, creates a positive atmosphere for them to come together, make music, and have a focused holiday.
Musica Semper Viva registrants will perform a variety of sacred and secular music from various regions and in various languages. They will collaborate with local community choirs in some of the performance locales to provide a true affirmation of the power of music to bring people of different cultures together. The performances will take place in unique and historic central European churches, castles, and concert halls.
The Musica Semper Viva Music Director will be Canadian choir director and composer Peter Dent who fulfilled that role in the previous Sing to the Lord Program.
Club Tours has for many years organized excursions for travelling choral and instrumental ensembles in Central Europe. It is also the organizer of many prestigious music festivals.
