Schola Cantorum of Sacred Heart Church in Sacramento California – Donald Kendrick, Director – recently had the pleasure of partnering with Music Celebrations International [MCI] to celebrate their 25th anniversary in June 2017 with a performance tour of Germany and the Czech Republic. "Schola thought long and hard about a meaningful way to celebrate our silver anniversary milestone and concluded that collaborating with MCI would indeed assure us of a memorable and uplifting celebration, one that we would remember for a lifetime,” says director Donald Kendrick.
The MCI Team worked closely with Schola to craft a tour during which we were able to share our message of beauty, hope and peace in inspirational concert venues in Berlin, Jöterbog, Wittenberg, Leipzig, Dresden and ultimately in Prague. MCI’s attention to detail - one of their hallmarks that makes Schola a return client - was remarkable throughout the planning process. Their Team worked hard to create a healthy flow during our time together in Europe. MCI’s clear communication style during the initial stages of the tour through to the farewell dinner was exemplary.
Karolina, MCI’s Tour Manager in Europe for Schola on this particular tour, provided a wonderful combination of professionalism, humor, sensitivity and warmth.
One of the many tour highlights was Schola’s final concert in Prague in St. Nicholas Church in the Old Town Square. On a very hot weekday afternoon in June, this amazing venue was packed with music lovers from the region and the reception from St. Nicholas Church was both warm and genuine. Schola was definitely “in the zone” for this one-in-a-lifetime musical experience and we floated on air for some days following that performance.
Thank YOU, MCI, for providing such amazing international musical memories for so many of us. Together with your vision and integrity, we return home with renewed vigor and commitment to the power of music that continues to shine a positive and life-changing light in the world. Please know that our hearts and voices continue to give thanks to you in full chorus.
With heavenly thanks,
Sacred Heart Church
