Singing in Salzburg, Austria

When you hear the name Mozart, you might associate it with words such as “child prodigy,” “classical music,” or “talented composer.” But for 21 Culver students, the name Mozart will yield the sights and sounds of Salzburg, Austria – home of the Mozart International Choral Festival. 

On June 28, the students and five adults departed the United States en route to Salzburg, Austria, where they were invited to sing in the second annual Mozart International Choral Festival; a combination of different choruses under the direction of Dr. Eph Ehly and professor Janos Czifra. 

The festival was held in the historic Salzburg Dom, a 17th century baroque cathedral.

“'Magnificent!',  'Powerful!',  'Moving!',  'Dynamic!',  'Breathtaking!', and 'Phenomenal!' were words we used to describe the experience of singing in the Salzburg Dom with the massed choir, Austrian orchestra, and professional soloists,” stated Culver Choir Director Stacey Warren. 

To document the trip and communicate with their family, friends, and supporters at home, the students kept a blog over the course of the week. You can read their stories and find out more at culverchoir.wordpress.com, or watch the videos on YouTube.
