American University Chamber Singers 2015 Concert Tour of Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia
The American University Chamber Singers are not strangers to new destinations. Their last tour included stops in Moscow, Yekaterinburg, Perm and Kazan, Russia, the last of which was an as-of-yet unvisited city by any ACFEA group. The excitement of that experience carried over to their 2015 tour, when the AU Chamber Singers became ACFEA’s first group to visit Kosovo. The entire tour included stops in Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia, earning the tour the award for most border crossings of any ACFEA tour this year.
As the group prepared to visit Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, we were all delighted to find out that the very weekend they were scheduled to be there would be the first weekend of an international contemporary music festival: ReMusica. The group was accepted to perform on the second night of the festival, in the new, large and almost-finished Mother Teresa Cathedral. The photo (below) was taken during the group’s performance of Kondalilla, by Stephen Leek.
