Hallo everybody.

Again, we have been contacted by the leaders of Bibliotheca Alexandria in Egypt to do 2 concerts on Easter 2007.
Bibliotheca Alexandria is celebrating its 5th anniversary and the Orchestra its 20th anniversary.
This they will celebrate together with World Festival Choir.
There will be room for only about 100 singers this time- so please send us your application quick!

We are, very much looking forward to collaborate with our friends in Egypt.
After the concert in Alexandria, there will be a party - “Egyptian style”!

The first concert will take place in Alexandria on the 3rd of April, and the second concert in Cairo on the 4th of April 2007.
We will arrive in Cairo on the 30th of March. Transfer by bus from Cairo to Alexandria. We will stay in Alexandria to the 4th of April. On the 4th of April, in the morning, we travel by bus to Cairo where the second concert takes place the same evening.
