Music Tours to Berlin

  • Vibrant and youthful city
  • Fascinating blend of east and west
  • Home to iconic 20th century landmarks

Berlin has evolved in recent years from being the symbol of the East/West division to the place where the two now meet and entwine. Berlin is a unique and fascinating city, which, since the fall of the Wall in 1989 has become one of Europe’s most buzzing capital cities. The colourful remains of the wall, sites of National Socialist conferences and the Prussian palaces are evidence of just some of the momentous historical events which have taken place here, while the city also displays the cutting edge in modern architecture.

Where to stay

Working with our contacts in Berlin, we will source appropriate accommodation for your ensemble, depending on your needs and budget.

Concerts

Concerts are possible for both choirs and orchestras in the famous Gethsemanekirche in the trendy district of Prenzlauer Berg in the former East Berlin. Berlin Cathedral and St.George's Anglican Church welcome choirs and recitals. Many more churches, if less well known, are hugely enthusiastic when receiving groups. The Augustinum Retirement centre has a purpose-built theatre and is very keen to receive our groups. Why not go further afield and cross the border into Poland (2 hour drive) and perform in the castle precinct in Szczecin?

"Lovely venues, lovely audiences, comfortable accommodation. Alahree was very prompt and efficient with her responses and understood our needs well."

Gill Chapman, Cecilia Singers, Berkshire.

"It was brilliant and everything I expected from a tour and more. Jonathan was brilliant. He was always patient with me and nothing seemed to phase him. Sabine was just wonderful, always willing to listen to what I suggested we wanted from the tour. She has endless patience. Playing at the Last Post was so moving, we felt very privileged to be able to perform at such a moving ceremony."

Cath Danswan, Swindon Choral Society, Wiltshire.
