As many students head home for Touring Break (a short break between January Interim and the start of second semester), Gustie musicians will head out on their annual music tours. Concert touring provides an opportunity to perform a concert program numerous times, fostering a deeper artistic understanding and expression of the music. It develops high levels of musical discipline and artistic integrity and allows the musicians to experience a variety of acoustic environments and widely diverse audience and ensemble dynamics. The Gustavus Wind Orchestra will tour internationally to Eastern Europe, and the Gustavus Choir will be touring the Upper Midwest:
- The Gustavus Wind Orchestra will have concerts across Czech Republic, Poland, and Austria. Find their detailed 17-day schedule online.
- The Gustavus Choir will have concerts and worship services in the following cities: (in Minnesota) Cambridge, Duluth, Virginia, Willmar, St. Paul, Stillwater, Edina, and (in South Dakota) Sioux Falls. Find more information on dates and locations online.
Both ensembles will have their home concerts in Christ Chapel on Feb. 15—the Gustavus Wind Orchestra at 1:30 p.m. and the Gustavus Choir at 7:30 p.m. Continue to check gustavus.edu/finearts/touringschedule for more information on Gustavus Ensemble Tours.
