Choral Cruises

After several years of co-ordinating concerts and Come & Sing days in London, in 2016 we teamed up with Voyages to Antiquity to present an all new Come & Sing experience — at sea!

Our next cruise takes place from August 14 – August 28 2019 and takes in Normandy, the Loire, Bordeaux, Galicia, Oporto and Lisbon.

Voyages to Antiquity is one of the classiest cruise companies around, and the 350-passenger MV Aegean Odyssey makes the perfect home for the Brandenburg Come and Sing at Sea project. With fine wining and dining, cultural visits in most ports of call and choral workshops every day, this is indeed an award-winning cruising experience.

Features of each cruise will include:

  • Award-winning cruise experience by Voyages to Antiquity
  • Singing workshops every day
  • Bespoke repertoire selected by participants
  • Final concert performance
  • Special Brandenburg social events
  • Directed by Brandenburg Artistic Director, Bob Porter

Our next cruise

Rouen to Lisbon, August 14 – August 28 2019

No cruise to the great rivers of France would be complete without a trip along one of the most romantic waterways in the world, the Seine, taking you inland to Rouen, the capital of Normandy, for an opportunity to enjoy a day out in romantic Paris, the City of Lights.

Stroll through the coastal port of Honfleur and sail the Loire to Montoir-de-Bretagne, for a scenic ride into the heart of Chateaux Country. Follow the trail of Garonne through the glorious Gironde countryside to Bordeaux, then learn more about the art of winemaking before tasting some of the region’s great vintages.

In the Spanish province of Galicia, explore the pilgrimage site of Santiago de Compostela, then in Portuguese Oporto visit the cathedral or a nearby wine estate. Finally, spend two nights in the capital of Lisbon, giving you the opportunity to fully experience this captivating city and the idyllic scenery surrounding it.
