Travel the World with Marist Music
The Marist Singers, led by Williams, gave a series of public concerts at prestigious venues in Vienna, Eisenstadt, Mondsee, and Hallstatt before heading to Mozart’s hometown of Salzburg to participate in World Choral Fest (WCF), whose aim is “bringing the world together in song.” The festival culminated in a dramatic performance of both classic and new choral works inside the elegant Salzburg Cathedral, where the public treated them to a standing ovation.
