2019 European Choral Tour

2019 European Choral Tour

The LMU Choruses and alumni choir, a mix of LMU students, chorus alumni, faculty/staff and community members, will perform in London and Paris in June 2019. Traveling abroad with the LMU Choruses and performing in some of the most beautiful churches in Europe will provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. There are a number of participation options for the singers so their experience can be tailored to their availability for rehearsals at LMU during the 2018-2019 academic year.

Following concert appearances in London the choruses will return to Paris where the tour will culminate in a special performance of Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem by invitation from Fréderic Blanc, organist titulaire at Église Notre Dame d’Auteuil in Paris. Blanc was the last student of Duruflé’s wife, organist Marie-Madeleine Duruflé.

For more information about participating in the tour, please contact Mary Breden, Director of Choral Activities. View the tour itinerary here.

Support LMU Choruses European Performances

As stewards of the LMU global vision, the choruses sit in a wonderful position to fully participate in enlivening their creative spirits and spreading their global wings by participating in this trip. Such remarkable experiences enhance LMU’s commitment to a powerful education and prove that such an education goes far beyond what any academic lecture or choral rehearsal can offer. By making a gift to LMU Choruses’ European trip, you can help make this remarkable, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity possible. Give today.
