Berlin with John Dickson - June 2014

Berliner Dom
In June 2014 I will lead a choral festival in central Europe and invite you to consider joining me.

Our individual performances and gala concert will be staged at the Berlin Dom with other concert opportunities for those that seek them in Berlin and in Prague.

Perhaps the opportunity for international travel and music-making has shaped my life as a professional musician as much as any other experience. Seeing the world through other cultures and singing in some of the globe’s great venues are life-changing experiences, whatever your path in life.

Bring your full or touring choir if you can – or bring singers to join in the combined performances if the full choir is not able to come with us.

I hope you will consider singing with me while we explore Europe.

2014 Bavarian Youth Choral Festival

Mozart, Schubert, Bruckner, Haydn
Dear friends

My musical colleagues in Southern Germany have invited U.S. choirs to return to Bavaria for an outstanding youth choral symposium in June 2014.

The Bavarian Invitational Youth Choral Festival will again be hosted by the historic village of Altötting and singers from Maria Ward Schule. The symposium features the study and performance of works by the major composers of this culturally rich region - Mozart, Schubert, Bruckner and Haydn!

You are invited to join other U.S. High School, Collegiate and Community Choirs and scholars from the Hochshule für Musik und Theater München (University of Music and Performing Arts Munich) and the Universität Mozarteum Salzburg (the University of Music and Dramatic Arts Mozarteum Salzburg) as we immerse ourselves in the works and lives of these famed composers.

The visiting choirs and host choir will join with the festival orchestra to learn and perform a representative work from the repertory of each master. The festival will culminate in a gala concert in Altötting and feature tour extensions to the concert halls and churches where these pieces were originally performed!

I am pleased to share this invitation to Altötting…to Bavaria…and to the Bavarian Invitational Youth Choral Festival with you.

Dr. Kevin Meidl

The Bavarian Invitational Youth Choral Festival was created in 2008 as a choral symposium for American conductors interested in a distinctive experience for their singers…one that is able to provide a deeper exploration of Europe’s foremost composers. Alötting is ideally located to host the festival as it rests directly between Munich, Passau and Salzburg…and is only a short drive to such major destinations as Prague, Budapest and Vienna. Altötting is home to the renowned Gnadenkapelle (Chapel of Grace- the most visited shrine in Germany) and the final resting place for the heart of each Bavarian king including “mad” King Ludwig II.
