The ACDA Honor Choir made up of the top high school singers from all across the U.S. came together in Washington, D.C. for three days of rehearsals, sightseeing, and a sold-out concert in Old Town Alexandria before departing on a concert tour of Prague, Salzburg, and Vienna. All of the concert venues were at full capacity and people were turned away at both the kick-off concert in Alexandria and at the first concert in Prague! Other highlights include a wonderful exchange with a school just outside of Salzburg, impromptu singing at various sights along the Sound of Music Tour, and a workshop and concert with Insingizi, a trio from Zimbabwe based in Vienna. Post-tour communication with ACDA include reports of strong friendships forged during the tour and plans for choir members to reconnect at upcoming regional conferences.
