2018 Music Tour in Chiesa degli Scalzi, Venice

The recent Music tour to Europe was a wonderful experience for staff and students alike. Mr Chris Balkizas, Mrs Anne Fahy, Mrs Michelle Rollins, Mrs Susannah Pinter and Mr Peter Frost along with 38 students, travelled to Austria and Italy during the first two weeks of the school holidays.

The tour provided an outstanding opportunity for the students to showcase and develop their musical talents. There were both secular and religious performances in a variety of venues, including an outdoor performance in Hungary, a combined performance with a local school at St. Gilgen (just out of Salzburg), and the singing of the Mass in the Votivkirche, Vienna and The Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua.

As well as performances the boys participated on a Choral workshop in Vienna and a Yodelling class in Salzburg! The latter causing much laughter and hilarity.

The Sightseeing was amazing and included city walks, a cemetery where Beethoven and other famous composers were buried, Melk Abbey, Mozart’s house in Salzburg, the Doge Palace in Venice, the Stradivarius Violin Museum in Cremona, and La Scala in Milan. The boys also visited Mauthausen Concentration camp as part of the Social Justice program.

All in all it was a most successful and enjoyable tour. Congratulations to the boys on their performances, enthusiasm and exemplary behaviour.
