2009 Crystal Chords Prague tour:
This year we arranged a tour to the wonderful city of Prague.
The Choir made two performances in two outstanding venues.
St.Salvator Church and St.Nicholas Church, both in the old town.
The performances were well attended and well received by locals
and tourists alike. As well as the pre-arranged performances the
ladies also managed to perform on Charles Bridge as well as on
other random occassions much to the delight of locals in the
vaccinity. Vamos Travel also arranged a gala meal for the chorus
at a Monastic Brewery pearched on the top of Prague castle and
arranged a walking tour showing off Prague's iconic sites. All
in all it was another fabulous tour holding some great times and
Saturday 3 October
We knew this was
going to be a good 'Girls on Tour' trip from the time we
arrived in Manchester airport to touch-down in Prague.
The buzz of excitement was deafening, or was that the
harmony singing in the airport? Saturday was
action-packed with our first concert in the beautiful St
Nicholas church. What a warm welcome from the audience.
We enjoyed this performance in such a breathtaking
space, with the harmonies floating up and into the
graceful arches above. We then went on a tour organised
by Vamos, which took in the amazing history and culture
all around, and fulfilled am ambition - to sing on the
Charles Bridge. The day finished with a delicious meal
in the Monastic Brewery, and a few well-earned drinks!
Sunday 4 October
The day was spend
further exploring beautiful Old Prague, winding through
cobbled streets, visiting coffee shops, and the main
squares. We had barely began to dig deep into what
Prague had to offer before our second performance in St
Salvatore church was upon us. We were thrilled to have
been invited to sing by the professional, classical
Prague Choir who were outstanding - and the Crystal
Chords harmonies perfectly complemented their
performance. Again, the audience was welcoming and were
very enthusiastic about the singing.
Monday 5 October
A full day of running
around, relaxation and reflection. There was enough time
for river and museum trips, buying gifts, more coffee
shops and taking in the stunning sights. What a trip! It
was thoroughly enjoyable and on the plane back, we had
stories to share and memories to keep. As with
Bratislava in 2007, it was a unique opportunity and a
performance tour well worth talking about for some time
