11th International Concert Tour: And we're off!

Go Back

Wednesday, 10th October 2012

Hundreds of e-mails, hours of googling, a fair bit of assistance from Google Translate and finally, an itinerary that we can be proud of! Seven host cities, eleven performances, and a jam-packed sight-seeing programme will make sure that there is not a moment of boredom for the choristers or chaperones! We are SO SO excited!

A big THANK YOU also to the Klinicare Group of Pharmacies, who has very kindly agreed to do their bit to ensure the tour's success, by sponsoring the medication for Dr. Louis' medicine bag.
