First European Concert in Speyer a huge success - Great Audience and Standing Ovations

Oh what a beautiful day!

What an amazing day we all had in Speyer: It all started with the visit of the almost 1000 year-old Kaiserdom where the choir presented their first recital to a very appreciative audience comprised of family members, friends and tourists passing by.

Next was the reception at the Historischer Ratsaal where the Lord Mayor Hanspeter Brohm officially welcomed the singers and their friends.

After a special guided visit of Speyer, plenty of ice-cream, some free time and a rehearsal, the choir got ready for their first highlight performance at St. Joseph. Several hundred people attended the concert and they were truly excited. Dorn Younger's European premiere was the first work to get a standing ovation. When the concert ended after about 80 minutes withe two encores, almost everybody in audience was on their feet and the applaus for the singers and director Arlene Jacobs lasted for a long time. Many guests came up to the singers and thanked them for this enriching experience.

And what a success it was! Enjoy the pictures below and after a few hours of sleep, we'll try to update those of you who cannot be with us with more info on your favorite group.
