Canticum Novum Scotland Tour

June 23 - July 1, 2022

We invite you to join us on the Canticum Novum Scotland Tour taking place June 23 - July 1, 2022, under the direction of Dr. Harold Rosenbaum. This tour will cover Edinburgh, Inverness, Fort William, and Glasgow. As part of this performance tour, the feature piece we will be singing is Mozart's Requiem.

Recognized among the premier interpreters of choral music, Dr. Harold Rosenbaum is the founder of The New York Virtuoso Singers (“New York’s outstanding concert choir” -NY Times), and The Canticum Novum Singers (an elite choir” – NY Times). He is the recipient of many awards including Columbia University’s Ditson Conductor’s Award. Other recipients of this award include Mstislav Rostropovich, Robert Shaw, Leopold Stokowski, Leonard Bernstein, Alan Gilbert, Michael Tilson Thomas, and James Levine.

All touring participants are required to be current with COVID-19 vaccinations to ensure the health, safety, and peace of mind of all traveling participants.  Furthermore, additional safety measures may be mandated by local governments, such as mask-wearing while indoors.  Updates on such measures will be given periodically right up to departure.

Highlights from the Tour

In addition to memorable performances throughout Scotland, you will have the opportunitiy to visit and tour Scotland's most exciting cities and sights. 

Edinburgh, with its striking medieval and Georgian districts, overlooked by the volcanic sill of Arthur's Seat to the south and the Calton Hill to the north, is widely regarded as one of Europe's loveliest capitals. The city is famous for the arts (it was once known as the "Athens of the North"), a preeminence reflected in its hosting every year of Britain's largest arts extravaganza, the Edinburgh Festival. Its museums and galleries display the riches of many cultures

Inverness is the administrative center for the Highland region, which consists of Nairn, Ross and Cromarty, Sutherland and Caithness, which are old counties of Inverness. Given the town's favorable location at the gateway to the Northwest Highlands, Inverness has become a busy tourist center and it makes a good starting point for excursions

Fort William lies on the shore of Loch Linnhe in the shadow of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. The town makes an ideal touring centre from which to discover the beauty of the surrounding countryside. The fort referred to in the town name was built by William of Orange in the middle of the 17th century but it was demolished in 1890 to make way for the new railroad line

Glasgow is Scotland’s largest and most highly populated city. In the 1980’s and 1990’s, Glasgow transformed itself into a vibrant post-industrial city. The city centre, with its ornate Victorian buildings is the stage for the new Glasgow, sparkling with nightlife, shopping, pubs and restaurants that are just about unmatched anywhere else in Scotland

No fewer than 15 battlefields lie within close proximity of the castle
