Save the Date: UWGB Alumni Central European choir trip, June 16-30, 2020

 

Central Europe has blossomed into a vibrant and fascinating place to visit in the post-communist era. Please join Dr. Sarah Meredith, UW-Green Bay professor of Music/Mezzosoprano and international traveler, on a once in a lifetime trip to visit and perform in an alumni choir in 3 unique European cities. Each of them depict different cultures and ways of life; charming Bydgoszcz in Poland, spa village, Karlovy Vary in Czech Republic, and historical, magnificent Prague in Czech Republic from June 16-June 30, 2020.
