English: Can you get Bragi to Bratislava?

Dear music lover,

The Groninger Studenten Muziekgezelschap Bragi was established in 1882 and is the largest student music association in Groningen, consisting of a symphony choir, symphony orchestra and an a cappella choir. Every year, we give multiple concerts with beautiful music in and around Groningen.

The foreign tour is a tradition which has become a fundamental part of Bragi. It takes place every two years and is one of the highlights of the year. This year’s summer, from July 22nd to July 30th, almost all members of Bragi will travel to Eastern Europe, where they will visit Prague, Bratislava and Leipzig. During the International Youth Music Festival, which takes place in Bratislava each year, the a cappella choir, the symphony choir and the orchestra will all sing and play parts of their repertoire. Besides that, the a cappella choir will for example also sing in the Thomaskirche in Leipzig. Next to all the musical activities, the program will provide a lot of cultural activities as well. We all expect it to be a very special foreign tour.
