Welsh Association European Tour 2016
The Welsh Association returned from a fantastic tour in August 2012. Sell out concerts in St. Petersburg and Moscow greeted the 118 strong Choir with over 100 supporters with the party.
Such was the success of the tour that we were delighted that the Association asked Melody Music to arrange their tour again in 2014 [August -19th]. An 11 day tour visiting Vienna, Krakow and Ljubljana. The tour was excellent and we have now been asked to produce the 2016 tour for the Association.
11 Day Tour to Baltic States (Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia)
17th -28th August 2016
Latvia: The capital city Riga is a fascinating mix and never disappoints and has a diverse culture. Set on the banks of the Daugava River, Riga boasts a stunning collection of beautifully restored Art Nouveau, Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque architecture and has become a UNESCO World heritage site. Very cosmopolitan in culture, while still retaining the charm of the “Old World”.
Lithuania: is a remarkable Country with the medieval Capital being Vilnius which joined the E.U. in 2004. Rebellious, quirky and vibrant, Lithuania (Lietuva) is Europe’s best-kept secret.
This country is a gem just waiting to be explored and the concert venues available are remarkable.
Estonia: Tallinn is a sophisticated and charming city and very easy to explore. The old town has an upper part known as Toompea with panoramic views over the city and the Gulf of Finland. All concerts on this tour will be in splendid venues, and the local Choir will perform 15 mins at the start of each concert.
This 11 day tour encompases some of the most beautiful sights in the regions. The choir will perform in excellent venues, coupled with full audiences.
All hotel accommodation is very central and on a bed and breakfast basis. Eating out is very competitively priced and a warm welcome awaits both choristers and supporters on this special tour of the Baltic States.
