2022 Summer Music Tour To Belgium
At the start of the summer holidays, 32 talented tourists from Princethorpe College’s Music department took part in a musical adventure when they embarked on a long-awaited performance tour of Belgium. Pupils from Year 7 all the way up to the Upper Sixth came along for the ride.
Their five-day action-packed itinerary included the chance to perform in three fantastic locations, as well as a visit and audio tour of the Musical Instrument Museum in Brussels. They also visited the Menin Gate in Ypres and were honoured to perform at the internationally renowned Last Post Ceremony. Their trip included a day in Bruges and a super visit to a chocolate factory, as well some time to explore the beautiful city of Brussels and take part in an exciting Virtual Reality experience.
Princethorpe’s prodigies were magnificent, confidently performing to appreciative and sizeable audiences in Ostend, Ypres and the Menin Gate. They were all fabulous ambassadors for the College, and had an incredible time into the bargain.
This is the second time that the College has taken its instrumental and choral groups on tour (previously having had a wonderful trip to Vienna in 2019), and the entire trip was a resounding success.
