“ We were selected from a wide range of choirs, so we are very lucky,” said Interim Conductor Kala‘i Stern. The group prepared eight pieces to perform at the event, including Mozart’s Coronation Mass.

“ I feel more than privileged to have been a part of this celebration,” said ensemble member Chanel Shiraishi, an international relations major. “I will never forget the sound and emotions that resonated through the cathedral on the day of our performance,” she added.

“ We have been so excited to share our music and our hard work,” added ensemble member Angel Husher, a biology major.

The students, along with faculty and staff chaperones, were treated to guided tours of historic Salzburg. They visited Mirabel Palace and Gardens, Mozart Square, the Dom Cathedral, University Church, the Mozarthaus (Mozart’s birthplace), the Leopoldskron and Hellbrunn castles made famous in The Sound of Music and took a cable car ride up to the Fortress.

While in Vienna—considered the music capital of the world—the HPU ensemble toured the Ringstrasse, Kärnerstrasse, the State Opera, Rathaus, Stadtpark, Schönbrunn Palace, and St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

In addition to the performances and tours of the historic cities, the ensemble attended and performed at an HPU alumni reunion held in Vienna.
