The tour took three weeks in June-July 2015. From Frankfurt, we went to Cologne, Castrop-Rauxel, Hamburg, Berlin, Magdeburg, Munich and back to Frankfurt. Next to hugely successful participation in the European Choir Games and the Grand Prix of Nations (2 x Gold Certificates and 2 x Gold Medals) in Magdeburg, we were extremely fortunate to work with schools in Cologne and Hamburg, to record backing vocals for alumni student Graham Candy in his Berlin studio, and to enjoy the heart-warming hospitality of the people of Castrop-Rauxel. Other highlights of the tour included visits to Bonn, Heidelberg, Schwerin, Rothenburg, Salzburg, and Dachau as well as the German Opera Berlin, the Beethoven House, the Mozart House, and various stunning cathedrals.

During the second week, we stayed in New York City where we enjoyed the many sites as well as visiting Broadway, Julliard School, and Carnegie Hall.
