Now in their 23rd year, Utah Chamber Artists and Artistic Director Barlow Bradford present their annual concert series that will culminate in a tour of Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic.

I hope they invite me. Good news story. Really. The Utah Chamber Artists choir will travel to Munich, Vienna, Salzburg and Prague in June 2014.

Prior to that, the ensemble will share the tour repertoire with Utah audiences. Programs will include music of Benjamin Britten and Witold Lutoslawski, both celebrating their centenaries in 2013.

The musicians of the choir and orchestra will be joined by the University of Utah Chamber Choir in February to present Brahm's "Ein Deutches Requiem." Soloists include Jason Hardink, John Eckstein, Craig Jorgensen, Michael Chipman, among others.
