Nestled in the middle of several tiny mountain ranges is Kosovo. Strong Turkish influences abound not only in the continued practice of Islam but also in the steaming cups of strong coffee, colorful bazaars, and a love of line dancing and folk singing.
Classical Movements has been organizing tours to the Balkans since 1995, even sending the first American choir to the famed Dubrovnik festival and being the first American company to start tours to Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia. The Philadelphia Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, Oregon Repertory Singers, College of William and Mary and others have enjoyed the ancient cities and picturesque landscapes. With its proximity to Serbia, Greece, and Macedonia, Kosovo is an opportunity for workshops and collaborations with unique musical communities.
