Mr and Mrs. Adams and 16 Wooster High School Band students toured through Europe in the Summer of 1997. Students were selected by nomination and audition to perform with a Band and Choir made up of students from throughout Ohio.

Sponsored by American Music Abroad, the trip was centered around performances in concert halls and public venues throughout Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Luxembourg.

Enjoy the picture gallery below.

The Wooster, Ohio contingent in Koblenz. The Rhine and Mosel rivers are in the background.
An outdoor performance in the Blackforest region of Germany. This picture was taken before the rain rolled in and moved the concert into a very intimate little room.
The students had no problem mixing with the locals.
The Dom zu Salzburg  was just one of the many grand cathedrals visited during the tour. Of note are the 5 organs that were constructed to conform to a composition by W.A. Mozart, written specifically for performance in the cathedral.
Two of the modest residences of Wolfgang Mozart. (note; the cars are not typical of his day :-)
No visit to Europe is complete without visit to one or more of the historical castles...
Lake Lucerne provides one of the many breathtaking views that are found throughout Switzerland.
The beautiful city of Lucerne, Switzerland.

This historic foot bridge was recently restored after a tragic fire.

Here's a nice panoramic view from atop one of the mountains near Westendorf, Austria. We took a ski lift part of the way up and hiked the rest of the way. Click on the picture below to see a panoramic movie from the peak. You'll need Apple's latest version of Quicktime.

* Students and Parents:  If you have any other pictures you would like to see posted here, please send them to the High School Music Office.
