Finale of the Gergiev Festival
Yale Festival Chorus Shines with Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

A formidable and select chorus combining forces from the Yale Alumni Chorus, Yale Schola Cantorum, Yale Camerata and the Cambridge University Musical Society came together for the finale of Valery Gergiev's Freedom Festival September 2006 at de Doelen in Rotterdam.

The program included Schoenberg's A Survivor from Warsaw with Maximilian Schell, narrator, the male chorus and the Rotterdam Philharmonic. It ended with a glorious Beethoven 9th with the entire chorus, prepared by Jeffrey Douma.

The tour was the culmination of a week long tour of the Netherlands that included visits to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and the enchanting town of Leiden.

At The Hague the Yale Alumni Chorus gave a special concert at the ancient Kloosterkerk hosted by the US Ambassador to commemorate the 5th anniversary of 9/11. In Leiden the Yale Choruses and the Cambridge University Music Society performed with the Leiden University's Collegium Musicum in the historic Pieterskerk.

With a taste of everything Dutch including bicycle tours, brewery visits, canal cruises, special museum tours to view Dutch masterpieces, windmills, pancakes on traditional Delft pottery and a finale dinner cruise of Indonesian cuisine on an old steamship in the world's biggest port, it was a tour to remember.

"You did such a spectacular job of following the ever-moving target in the months before the trip, finding us the venues we needed and working with us to make the tour the enormous success that it was. And then once the tour began, there you were, always thinking of how to improve things, quietly taking care of the problems...from lost tuxes to too-many Delft passengers. There are many smiling YAC faces as a result of your hard work and great competence."
[SHERRY AGAR, PRESIDENT, YALE ALUMNI CHORUS]
