Representing students from various countries within the European Union, the KH Choir traveled to Alsace as part of a school exchange program with Alsatian colleges, joining in the grand celebration of the European Parliament’s 70th anniversary. Their awe-inspiring performance of the European anthem took place in collaboration with the Maitrise de l’Opéra National du Rhin, captivating the audience with their harmonies.
The journey began with the safe arrival of the KH Choir in Strasbourg, where they immediately delved into intense rehearsals at the renowned ZENITH. Immersed in perfecting their voices, the choir members poured their hearts and souls into creating a breathtaking musical experience. The culmination of their efforts came to fruition during the highly anticipated live event on Tuesday, May 30th.
