The CU Chorale traveled through Europe for a 19-day tour in May 2013.
The tour included stops in Budapest, Hungary; Bratislava, Slovakia; Vienna, Austria; Prague, Czech Republic and across central and northern Germany. Students stayed in host homes, enabling them to experience the culture first hand and develop personal relationships.
Quotes from concert hosts and guests:
“I came to the concert tonight very tired, but now I am energized. Tonight heaven and earth have come together.”
“The performance was fantastic. We felt the presence of God. Many said that beyond the beautiful musical experience they had been filled spiritually.”
“We all need angels. We rarely see them. Tonight we did.”
“One cannot hear music of this high quality every day.”
A Pastor's Story:
"Exceeding abundantly more than I asked or imagined" (Ephesians 3:20) sums up my thoughts of the Cornerstone University Chorale tour in Hungary. We had heard that the choir was good and we knew their tour goal was ministry, but none of us was prepared for the power of the Chorale's presentation. People here were blown away by the precision and professionalism of the choir. Many explicitly said they have never heard anything quite so good.”
Chorale Members Reflect:
"If I had not gone on this trip I would not have had the opportunity to see the Lord overcome language barriers by moving so visibly through our music. The reaction of the audiences, the tears and the hugs, astounded me. I did not expect the listeners to be so touched. I truly believe that the Lord was working in the hearts of those who listened to us."
