Birmingham Festival Choral Society regularly tours abroad. Past tours have visited Bulgaria, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium & Holland, Slovenia, Estonia, Slovakia, Ireland, France and Romania. Tours are a great way of bringing the choir together, through new friendships, and shared choral experiences in beautiful places.
Our 2019 choir tour was to Romania. We spent three days in the capital city of Bucharest, followed by three days based in Brasov, in the beautiful mountainous region of Transylvania.
