A Trip of a Lifetime

Today I'm sharing some details about a trip that my daughter's string ensemble will be going on. They are having a musical school tour to Europe. Maddy leaves on Saturday for Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic! Here are just some of the amazing places she will be visiting and some of the venues she will be performing at:

Her choir will be performing at the Salzburg Cathedral!

That very afternoon her string ensemble will be performing at the Mirabell Gardens. The Mirabell Palace and gardens is famous for many because several scenes from The Sound of Music were recorded there.

Maria and the children sing 'Do-Re-Mi' while dancing around the horse fountain and using the steps as a musical scale! Make sure you get a photo just like this Maddy!

They will then travel to Prague...


And will be performing at the St Nicholas Cathedral.
St Nicholas Church and the Lesser Quarter

They then travel to Budapest and attend workshops at the Kodaly Institute and perform at St Michael’s Church in Budapest. The historical baroque church is the home of baroque music in Budapest, named one of the most beautiful baroque buildings in Budapest, Hungary.

  1. What a trip your daughter is going to have. Truly wonderful. It is great to find other Australian blogs. I am in Melbourne and have been blogging for a few years but have not come across too many Aussie blogs. I saw your link on someone's blog rolls and decided to stop by. I must visit your Christmas blog too as I just love Christmas.
