Music Transcends Language: Building Bridges

I have been so blessed to be apart of this tour with the Wartburg Choir. Being able to experience all the different cultures that we have been exposed to on this trip has truly been life changing and I believe that I am a better person because of these experiences. I was able to share love with complete strangers and develop relationships with people that will last a lifetime. The most amazing part of the trip was being able to overcome language barriers through our music. Music transcends language and that was proven on this trip. I have memories from this trip that I will hold close to heart for the rest of my life. I am so thankful to have been apart of this international tour!
