Home to some of Europe’s most famous philosophers, scientists, writers and musicians, Germany can be combined with tours in Austria and the Czech Republic, but we think it is a whirlwind tour all by itself. Through Bach, Beethoven and Brahms, Schumann and Schütz, Wagner and Weill (among many others) and all the castles, cathedrals and theaters that have played host to their performances, exploring Germanic history and culture is just as easy in-person as it is from your music stand.
Classical Movements started touring to Germany in 1995. Past groups have included (again, among so many others) the National Symphony Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra Chamber Players, Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Bard College Conservatory Orchestra, Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus, Musica Viva, University of Kentucky Women’s Choir and Cantaré Children’s Choir. Distinguished German ensembles such as Leipzig’s Calmus and Windsbacher Knabenchor have toured the U.S. with Classical Movements and been featured during our own Serenade! Washington, D.C. Choral Festival.
