2001 European Choir Tour

KW LogoThe Wisconsin Lutheran Choir, in a partnership with the Milwaukee Chapter of the WELS Kingdom Workers, is embarking on its first overseas tour in 2001 to Germany, the Czech Republic, and Austria. The purpose of the tour is threefold: outreach, cultural enrichment, and educational experience. Through this opportunity, students will be able to taste mission work while far from home, broaden their perspectives of God's people and His whole creation, and meet important academic and aesthetic goals.

Some highlights include a visit to congregations and guests of our German sister synod, the Evangelical Lutheran Free Church, in Zwickau; and a retreat hosted by the WELS European Chaplaincy in the Frankfurt area. Several other concerts and informal presentations in historically significant locations will round out a full itinerary.

While on tour, students will be able to model their Christian stewardship and faith through presentations of excellent sacred and secular choral literature and through personal interactions with concert guests. Throughout the tour, concertgoers will be invited to find out more about our confession through European members of the Confessional Evangelical Lutheran Conference. The choir is pleased to join the Milwaukee Chapter of the WELS Kingdom Workers in this outreach effort.

The tour offers still more benefit to students through multicultural exposure and a chance to demonstrate, appreciate, and respond to academic and aesthetic experiences.
