Zwischen Himmel und Erde

25 June 2016

Cardiff University Chamber Choir

Cardiff University Chamber Choir has headed out on the road for its first-ever German tour.

The Chamber Choir, along with conductor John Hugh Thomas and organist Robert Court, has so far performed in L├╝beck and in Hamburg's Englische Kirche, and will also be performing at Hamburg's Johannes Kirche.

Supported by the University’s Global Opportunity Centre, the tour aims to support outward student mobility through helping facilitate overseas opportunities. It gives us an opportunity to showcase our student talent abroad, while also allowing our student musicians to experience different cultures and perform for new audiences.

Zwischen Himmel und Erde (between Heaven and Earth) is the programme title as the Chamber Choir is performing a selection of European choral works including pieces by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Jonathan Dove and Eric Whitacre.

This is the second tour we have run this year, the first being Cardiff University Symphony Orchestra's tour to Heidelberg, Wiesbaden, Baden-Baden and Leuven.
