Trying to figure out where in the world you are....took about 10 clicks, till I landed on one of the hotels on your college website. It might be helpful to have a location on your website homepage. Lovely place, and wonderful choir! I graduated from Knox College in Galesburg, IL and was in the choir there.
It's very reassuring to know such wonderful women of the Lord are in the world such a great inspiration, to see strong uncompramizeing beautiful talented sisters leading the way, although sort of parcel to Elle, I love her dearly my the hearing and hearing impaired be blessed,I know that her Lord ,would be pleased,because he is so wonderfully proud of her, and you lady's of God's profound Glory.

Check out the Metal Cup custom order forms on the Wartburg parents page. You too could have a Wartburg cup with your name on it! :) (It won't let me post the form on this page)
If you have never heard them, you really need to go. They musical abilities are outstanding. I had the great opportunity to hear them last year at the Cleveland Clinic Hospital in Cleveland. I was there for a dr. appt with my brother and heard this amazing music coming from down the hall. GREAT performances.

Herr Stötzner was very gracious to have both the Castle Singers and Kammerstreicher not only perform in a concert but also participate in the Sunday a.m. worship service.
