Here is another wonderful report from Matt, a music leader in Merseyside on his school choir tour to Prague this summer:
“Hannah (his Account Manager) was fantastic as always,” he told us. “Extremely efficient, thorough, professional and patient. Sabine (his Operations Manager) was extremely helpful and thorough too with all of my requests. She left no stone unturned to provide us with an unforgettable tour.”
The choir performed in a cathedral: “It’s the most significant Church/cathedral in the Czech Republic – of course we’d like to return!” Matt commented. “We had a beautiful outdoor garden performance – very informal. No acoustics but it was so intimate and quiet – a beautiful moment.
“The best acoustic of the tour was our concert in the museum – it was awesome, especially for our choir. It felt like the clouds of Heaven itself has parted and a choir of angels descended. This venue was one of the highlights of the tour because of the acoustic and appreciative audience. It was honestly a special moment for me, our girls and their visiting families.
“Prague was a fantastic destination, especially for choirs. It was perfect for groups. During a busy tour, Jitka (their Tour Manager) helped us move seamlessly through Prague and into venues without a single hiccup. She was fantastic – almost too good at times when she would talk the girls through the next day before I even got a chance to have a chat with them.
“I couldn’t have done it without her!”
Matt summed up: “Our chamber choir tour to Prague is something that we will never forget (from our year 7s right up to staff) – probably for the rest of our lives. Thank you.”
