♫ Choral Odyssey Greece! - June 2015 with Anna Hamre
Date: February 14, 2014
Where better to plan a choral performance odyssey than to Greece, the land of Homer and Euripides. Explore the land of Zeus, Apollo, and the other Olympian gods as we sing in their shadows. View the structural perfection that defines the Parthenon. Imagine the ancient Colossus presiding over the harbor at Rhodes as we cruise the Greek Islands.
We will rehearse and sing in Athens as well as on our cruise ship. Enjoy the opportunity for individual, combined and exchange concerts as, together and separately, we make great music in the land of Orpheus during the summer of 2015.
Greece is the culture that formed our understandings of democracy and our notions of civilization. Enjoy the beauty and cuisine of the Mediterranean while we explore the city of Plato and Aristotle. As we visit Delphi, recall the troubled warriors who journeyed there to consult the oracles. Wander with us as we evoke the words of the great Socrates, who said, “Wisdom begins in wonder.”
Artists remember that Greece is the home of the Muses: writers continually search for their muses, travelers visit museums, and those with free time amuse themselves.
Join us in Athens and cruising the Greek Islands for the Choral Odyssey of a lifetime!
