Our latest commission has global impact

In Spring 2016, iSing's choirs premiered their new commission, "Here I Stand" by local composer Karen Linford with words by Malala Yousafzai. 

Malala's father, Ziauddin Yousafzai recently saw the video of the premier performance and tweeted about it! Check out his tweet and the world premiere performance below. We will bring change!

iSing Viking Tour of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway

Following our 2015 Tour of France, we return to the world's stage to tour throughout Scandanavia, a region that maintains a rich history of fantastic singing. We are taking 23 of our middle and high school singers to Copenhagen, Gothenburg, and Oslo in June 2016. 

While visiting these countries, we will engage in cultural exchanges with renowned choirs. We are so excited to experience the food, culture, and music of Copenhagen through the eyes of the Copenhagen Girls' Choir. Our singers will attend their special school for the choir, sing at Tivoli Gardens, and stay with host families. iSing is hosting the Copenhagen Girls' Choir for a concert in Palo Alto in March. We will be delighted to see our new friends again in June.

In Sweden, we will visit with the Gothenburg Youth Choir, a fantastic choir for young people. 

After a brief visit to the fjords of Aurland, we will have the great honor of being hosted by the Norwegian Girlchoir, Det Norske Jentekor. This phenomenal choir of young women is world renowned for their singing. We are so looking forward to singing with them, learning from them, and experiencing Norwegian culture through their singers and families.

As you can tell, this tour promises to be an enriching experience for the girls, full of personal connections to the people and places they will visit.
