Join Music Celebrations International and Faith Journeys for an incredible Preview Tour of Germany! In advance of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017, we’ll be visiting sites so important to the life of Martin Luther and his historic movement. You’ll walk away from this tour with a greater understanding of this country’s rich musical, historical, and religious history. There is no better opportunity to become familiar with the highlights of a German concert or pilgrimage tour than this experience. In addition, this will be an unparalleled opportunity for choir directors to visit locations pertinent to the Luther 2017 Choral Festival and return home with a wealth of knowledge about the event before their choir’s participation.
