Concords on way to Germany
NEW ULM — The Concord Singers, New Ulm’s all male German-language chorus, left for Germany Thursday to visit New-Ulm’s Bavarian sister city Neu Ulm.
The Concord Singers are traveling to Neu-Ulm to participate in the city’s 150th anniversary and the 100th anniversary of Neu-Ulm’s Blaskapelle [brass band].
Andy Miller said this year’s visit is the group’s fifth tour. The last time the Concord Singers visited Germany was in 1997, he said.
The group will also perform with three of Neu-Ulm’s sister cities to celebrate the two anniversaries. In addition to the performance in Neu-Ulm, the Concords will also travel to Reutlingen and Herborn-Seelbach.
In total, 47 people are traveling to Germany with 23 singers and 24 guests. Miller said they’ll tour several other cities before returning to the United States June 9.
