Trips

Salzburg, Austria

2013 - Tour of the Rhine River

50 singers and musical ambassadors traveled the Rhine River from Basel, Switzerland to Amsterdam, Netherlands aboard Avalon Cruiseís boat the "Felicity". Concerts were held in Basel, Switzerland; Rudesheim, Germany; and Oude Kirke, Amsterdam, as well as a Farewell shipboard concert.

Salzburg, Austria

2011 - Tour of Switzerland and Austria

Our 8th biennial summer concert tour began in Switzerland with a sung Mass at the Hofkirche in Lucerne. Next we performed a concert of American Spirituals and Jazz at the Engadin Music Festival in St. Moritz. Our final concert was at St. Gilgen, Austria with a collaboration of musicians from the Salzburg Mozarteum in a program of opera selections by W.A.Mozart.

QCS at the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague

2009 - Tour of the Czech Republic and Germany

In this picture, you see us performing the European premiere of "Songs of Sorrow and Hope" at the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague, Czech Republic. We were thrilled to be singing in the same room that Beethoven first performed his Symphony #3 "Erioca". Our other concerts in Potsdam and Dresden were musically inspiring and the scenery in Germany was breathtakingly beautiful as we cruised the Elbe River for 7 days.

QCS at Church in the Rock, Helsinki, Finland

2007 - Tour of Helsinki and St. Petersburg

We were the first American Choir invited to perform in Russia at the International Singing World Festival. Enthusiastic applause greeted our performances in St. Petersburg at Capella Hall and St. Peterís Cathedral and in Helsinki at the "Church in the Rock".

Quincy Choral Society at Saint Mark's in Italy

2005 - Tour of Italy

We sang in the splendor of St. Markís Cathedral in Venice at the 6pm mass. Italian audiences in Florence marveled at our Vivaldi "Gloria" and, in Stresa (Milan), loved our Gershwin and jazz selections. After the tour, several members did an extended tour to Rome.

Quincy Choral Society in Prague

2003 - Tour of Vienna and Prague

One of the highlights of this tour was singing Mozartís "Ave Verum" in the choir loft of the church where Mozart composed the piece! Prague audiences were amazed by our performances at the International Festival of Sacred Music at the St. Nicholas Church.

Quincy Choral Society at a castle in Wales

2001 - Tour of Wales and Scotland

QCS performed a joint concert with the Cowbridge Male Voice Choir at Atlantic College, Porthcawl. We then traveled north to Yorkshire, England for a concert at Bolton Castle and finally to Greyfriarís Church in Scotland as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Quincy Choral Society in Chenonceaux, France

1999 - Tour of France

Our tour began in the Loire Valley at Chenonceaux and finished in Paris. What a thrill it was to sing Fauréís music at Chartres Cathedral! Parisians were "jazzed" by our Ellington selections and Bernsteinís "Best of All Possible Worlds" from Voltaireís Candide.

Quincy Choral Society in London

1997 - Tour of England

John Quincy Adams was married in London in 1797...thus we commemorated the event on our first concert tour at All Hallows by the Tower. We then performed a concert at the Greenwich Music Festival hosted by the Mayor of Greenwich and two concerts in Bramham and Driffield. The former was at a parish church and the latter at a manor house as a benefit for British Cancer Research.
