Love to sing? Ever wanted to go to Portugal?

Convento de Cristo

Now there is a good reason to go! As part of Zêzere Arts Festival of Opera, Song and Singing 2013 There is an opportunity for singers to come to Tomar and have a 'choral holiday'. The Oratorio Chorus will have fewer rehearsal commitments than the Chamber Choir and will have time to explore and enjoy this beautiful region of Portugal.

There is an amazing opportunity to spend time living and singing in one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. The pictures can only come close to describing the true splendour of the magnificent Knights Templar, Convento de Cristo in Tomar, Portugal.

More about the Convento de Cristo
The stunning Convento de Cristo in Tomar was built in the 12th Century as a Templar fortress and is a World Heritage Site. Steeped in history, the convent was the headquarters of the Templar order in Portugal, a vital stronghold in the struggle with the Moors and later central to Portuguese expeditions in the Age of Exploration. The Convento is vast and features a 12th century, round Templar church as well as 8 spectacular cloisters from the 15th and 16th centuries.
