Neuer Kammerchor Berlin, Germany

Dear ladies,
we had a wonderful time in Prague and enjoyed participating in the Praga Cantat so much! We were completely satisfied and felt warmly welcomed, especially through our lovely guide Magdalena who made it very easy for us to orientate, feel home and safe. Every detail was well-organized throughout our stay! Even our hotel was in walking distance to the National House which was perfect. Further, the great opening concert was so much fun and we were deeply impressed by the choir performing in so many languages with such a great deal of fun! Another special moment was the singing of the compulsory piece - in our case „Napadly pisne“ - with all the other participating choirs. We got to know many people from different countries and felt that winning was not the most important goal but making new friends and experiences was even more vital. Thank you again for this 100%-well-organised event!!!

" BRAVO à vous pour cette organisation parfaite..... Tout s'est déroulé à merveille. L'hôtel était vraiment très bien, confortable et accueillant à souhait! Nous avons marqué les esprits, surtout au bar, où nous avons passé trois soirées tous ensemble à chanter.,,,,,

Le concours était très stressant....mais nous étions heureux et fiers de cette médaille d'argent. Nous avons donné le meilleur de nous-mêmes et l'émotion était là...

La ville maintenant, Prague, tellement magnifique. Même si nous avons visité les quartiers du château sous une neige et un vent qui n'ont cessé de tomber/souffler la journée durant le samedi. Et nous avons pu profiter de l'après-midi libre pour flâner à notre guise dans les rues. Que de beautés. Rien à redire donc. Que du bonheur, une chance incroyable pour nous de pouvoir chanter dans une salle magnifique, d'avoir eu la chance de profiter de passablement de temps libre ...1000 mercis encore pour votre merveilleuse collaboration et votre souci du détail...

Liebe Frau Koslerova,

ich möchte mich nochmal für die tolle Organisation und die wunderbare Zeit in Prag bei Ihnen bedanken. Unser Chor hat unglaubliche musikalische Momente erleben dürfen.
Unser Favorit für den Grand Prix war von Anfang an der österreichischer Chor gewesen und wir freuen uns sehr, dass sie auch gewonnen haben.
Wir hatten das Glück mit diesem Chor im gleichen Hotel zu übernachten und konnten dann noch im Hotel mit Ihnen feiern und Musik machen. Es war sehr schön. Auch die Betreung durch Frau Erika Kavkova war einfach super. Sie ist eine wunderbare Stadtführerin und Betreuerin gewesen. Vielen Dank für Alles.

Liebe Grüße aus Nürnberg
