Patron Trip to Germany 2022

Patrons of the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra will embark on a very special tour to Germany.  We will visit three cities—Berlin, Dresden and Leipzig—with sterling musical legacies and current offerings that are among the best in the world. We will hear the famed Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Berlin Philharmonic, and share many amazing musical opportunities.

For Maestro Ross, it will also be a very personal odyssey. He was the first American to become a member of the Gewandhaus orchestra, and to be mentored by Maestro Kurt Masur, who inspired his career as a conductor.

Berlin is the home to major orchestras and opera houses with one of the liveliest music scenes in the world. The courtly and bejeweled city of Dresden is a major venue for great music with an orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, the oldest on German soil. And Leipzig, Maestro Ross’s former home town, is home to Bach’s Thomaskirche, the homes of Mendelssohn and Schumann, and the Museum of Musical Instruments.

You will visit historical sites from the Middle Ages to World War II as well as highlights like a tour of the BMW factory and special visits to Sanssouci Palace and Colditz Castle.

Your tour cost includes stays at lovely four-star hotels in each city, as well as ground transportation, a full-time Tour Manager, guides in each city, and a $1,000 tax-deductible donation to the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra.
