Join internationally-renowned conductor Helmuth Rilling on June 17, 2017 for a choral event at the magnificent Berliner Dom.  Singers from across the globe are invited to join a grand festival chorus to sing the music of Mendelssohn and Bach, including Ein Feste Bur ist unser Gott, in celebration of 500 years of Reformation.

Martin Luther was a simple monk, who – through his stand of conscience – started an ecclesiastical shock wave that changed the course of Western history. This great Protestant revolutionary held such a strong belief in his faith that eventually he overthrew the all-powerful Catholic Church and reshaped Medieval Europe.

 

Music Celebrations International has created itineraries that will have your group visiting many of the locations so important in the life and times of Luther, from Eisleben to Worms to Wittenberg and Leipzig, where you will see his homes, churches, and sanctuaries he used in his darkest hours, where he translated the Bible into the vernacular.

Join Music Celebrations International and Faith Journeys for an incredible Preview Tour of Germany, July 14 – 21, 2016! 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.
