The Colburn Children’s Choir’s third Classical Movements tour brought the choir to Portugal and Spain where they enjoyed a festival performance in Lisbon, three collaborative concerts with local choirs in Spain, and a concert in Iglesia de la Magdalena in the historic UNSECO World Heritage center of Cordoba. In addition to experiencing Portugal’s domination of the European Championship on the night of their concert in Lisbon, the highlights of the tour were the collaborative workshops and concerts with the three local choirs in Spain, including extensive press coverage of the collaboration with Coro Meridianos, an el Sistema-like choir in Seville.
