Music Tour to Austria

With the aims of polishing up on our choir's performance skills and broadening their horizons, the Music Department organised a tour to Austria from 23 June to 2 July.  This year 23 members of the School Choir was accompanied by our beloved guide dog, Bene.  The 10D9N tour took in two musically important cities, Vienna and Salzburg.  In Vienna, our students attended vocal workshops by Mr Robert Rieder, who is a jazz musician and an ex-choirmaster of one of the Vienna Choir Boys' touring ensembles.  The workshops inspired our choir to reach new heights.  Students thoroughly enjoyed learning in this interactive way.  While in Vienna, students also got an opportunity to perform in Haus Der Musik.  In Salzburg, the School Choir visited University Mozarteum and performed in Grosse Saal and St Andrä Church.  It was definitely a happy and memorable experience in our school year.
