Come and Sing – at Sea!
The final event of the 2016 Spring Series of the Brandenburg Choral Festival of London took place NOT in London - but at sea!
After presenting sell-out concerts for the last six years, we teamed up with the prestigious Voyages to Antiquity to create a very special Come & Sing experience, culminating in a performance on board the MV Aegean Odyssey while moored in the beautiful Italian city of Ravenna.
With prices starting at £2,345pp, pretty much everything was included: shore excursions (like the private evening tour of St Mark's), hotels, excellent wines with dinner, lectures, gratuities, transfers, flights, etc,
as well as a special $100 on-board spend too.
Joining the tour as a discrete group, the cruise sailed from Athens to Venice, taking in some incredible historic destinations along the way. In addition, our group enjoyed daily singing of repertoire selected by them, special Brandenburg-only social events and a final concert whilst moored in the Italian city of Ravenna. Our choral workshops were a highly popular addition to the cruise!
