Music Tour 2023
Despite having to postpone Music Tour 2020, and then cancel Music Tour 2021, flights are now booked, students signed up and rehearsals underway for the 2023 Music Tour to Barcelona. The itinerary is being confirmed but they’ll be 2 public performances, a trip to a Theme Park as well as plenty of time in the sun! More info to follow.
Music Tour 2018
This year we had a fantastic overseas Music Tour to Belgium in July 2018. Members of the choir and chamber choir travelled to stay in Ypres, and perform in the historic and picturesque city of Bruges at St. Salvatore’s Kathedral after a great day out and performance at the Bobbejaanland Theme Park. Here’s some of the highlights of our star performers having fun (and the teachers too!!):-
Music Tour 2016
We have just returned from the Black Forest in Germany and had a fantastic time! We performed three hour-long concerts with a Musical Theatre theme: one in Freudenstadt, the next in Titisee and the final one in Strasbourg. We had a great reaction from those who came to see us; one audience demanded an encore! We stayed in a lovely village called Oberharmersbach but ventured out into the city of Strasbourg and one of the world’s best theme parks, Europa Park.
Music Tour 2014
In July 2014, the Portland Place Choir and Chamber Choir went on a one week trip to Barcelona and the surrounding area. The groups performed two concerts (another was unfortunately rained off!) in the open-air, singing a programme of Musical Theatre songs, including tunes from Les Mis, Phantom of the Opera and Guys and Dolls. While in Spain, the group also visited Port Aventura, one of Europe’s leading theme parks, Las Ramblas, Gaudi’s Parc Guell and the Monserrat Monastery, and also spent a lot of time at the beach and in the swimming pool!
Here’s a clip of our Chamber Choir singing Seasons of Love from Rent in Barcelona!
Here are a few photos from the trip.
