I could not have wished for a more exciting, memorable, or impactful last step in my college career. This tour has truly changed the way I view the world and will continue to positively impact me as I open the next chapter in my life. Throughout this tour, I have had the opportunity to bond with individuals I did not previously know, experience new cultures whole-heartedly, get a job while in Neuendettelsau, Germany, and change the lives of those who attended our concerts. The 2014 Wartburg College Choir IS the bridge that merges vastly different cultures together, while pointing out their similarities and embracing their differences. It took me till the second to last concert of this tour to realize WE are the bridge that everyone has been talking about. Through our concerts, even though most of our audiences did not understand the languages we sang in, they 100% understood the meanings of our songs. Congratulations to everyone who was a part of this tour because while we were making amazing music, we built many bridges between our country and others that will last for many years to come.
