- What about the name for this tour?: We are always planning tours beginning about two years in advance. I had been musing for some time that so many of our students are really in to music, and not just people in the music department. My mind had been on Vienna and Salzburg, and I realized that Munich would be an easy entry point from Houston, and Prague is close. So that was the concept for the tour, and I was discussing it with Ms. Chase and we realized we could include a trip to Dachau concentration camp, the Nuremberg Nazi party rally stadium, the Jewish quarter in Prague. So I said to Ms. Chase, "so yeah, it's essentially a Nazis and music tour." To which Ms. Chase said, "you mean like The Sound of Music?" And there it was, the name for this incredible tour winding through some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the world with a unique, but of course familiar feel to it, Mozart, and waltzes and all of it! So here it is, HSPVA's Sound of Music Tour. This will be a once in a lifetime experience. I hope you will join us.
