THE SCRATCH® CHORAL CRUISE

Sing the Romantic Rhone

Take me straight to the booking form (opens in a new window)

For this late-autumn cruise we have the luxury of exclusive use of a boat: the five-star Amadeus Symphony operated by Lüftner Cruises. We will cruise up and down the River Rhône (and part of the Saône) in style, dividing our time between optional shore visits to vineyards, market towns and palaces, and singing our way (when not eating and drinking!) through some spectacular riverside scenery.  More . . .

Brian Kay will steer us through an appropriately named volume of madrigals, Drinking and Smoking, and the equally apt St Cecilia Mass by the French composer Gounod. See Details for Singers for more information.

Join us for a totally hedonistic week: go to the bookings page (see link above) send off for the full brochure.
