.Qatar Junior Choir Tour 2019
Our younger choir is working really hard in rehearsal studio currently, preparing a large choral programme to perform in Wolfenbüttel, Germany in September. There is a wonderful sense of excitement about this trip, being meticulously planned by our parent committee. Eurotreff'19 will be a highlight in the memories of these young singers. They will participate in workshops with experience choral conductors, and will have to perform every day at different venues over the 5 days. They will need a huge amount of stamina to do all of this, and hopefully, they will hear the most amazing examples of choral singing for their age group and return to Doha with renewed love for their craft and pride in what they do.
