Tour Day – 1

This is just one of the churches we will be singing in during the tour.  This church is in Bernstadt I believe.  Well, only a few more hours before we get on the plane?  Excited and scared at the same time.  Excited about going to Germany to this wonderful tour that starts with a stay in Munich, then we move to Ulm further North to Erfurt, Berlin and end in Leipzig.

When we move to Ulm we are scheduled to sing in the Liebfrauenkirche in Ehingen as part of the Ehingen Musik Sommer Festival on July 6, followed by participation in a service in Ulm Minster on July 7 and another concert in the Lambertuskirkche, Bernstadt on the 7th.

On the 8th we move to Erfurt – I remember plotting how to attack that when I was at Staff College in the 90s – how times change.   Anyway, we swing by Bamberg on the way for a quick sightseeing and meal adventure.

On the 9th we have a concert in Jena at the Stadtkirche.  Then on the 10th we move to Berlin – with a sightseeing stop in Weimar.

When we get to Berlin we have a day to do some serious sightseeing followed by an informal concert on the 12th at the Berlin Dom and then another service participation at the Gedachtniskirche.

Finally on the 13th we head over to Leipzig for some additional touring and a service in the Thomaskirche on the 14th and participation in the summer series of concerts in front of the Bach Denkmal outside the Thomaskirche.

Should be fun – More in the next post.
