North Valley Chorale Returns from
Successful European Concert Tour

This summer Director Eleanor Johnson led the North Valley Chorale (NVC) on the group’s first international concert tour, American Showcase-Europe Tour 2016.  The American Showcase concert program was available in German, Czech and English. The Chorale delighted concert-goers in Munich (Germany), Salzburg and Vienna (Austria), and Prague (Czech Republic) with selections from Broadway musicals, spirituals, folk songs, and traditional and contemporary American music. NVC members also participated in a 2-day Mozart master class that culminated in the performance of the Mozart Requiem with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra and choirs from around the globe as part of the international “Sing Mit” Choir Festival. From the awe-inspiring cathedrals, magnificent palaces and grand museums to intimate community centers and tiny monasteries, North Valley Chorale members agreed that each performance… and each audience was very special. Most members described the American Showcase-Europe Tour 2016 as “trip of a lifetime.” All agreed that the musical, cultural, social and gastronomic aspects of the experience were equally wonderful and that the only way to have improved the trip was if every NVC member was able to tour with us.
