The University Choir Lille MUKO goes on tour to Jutland in the autumn holiday
The leaves change color and the birds fly southward to follow the heat and the sun's rays.
The University Choir Lille MUKO also goes travelling, although within Denmark's borders, when the choir takes a trip to Jutland in the autumn holiday in week 42. This is part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the choir.
Joining us on the tour is the young and ambitious choir conductor Jonas Rasmussen, and we look forward to a fruitful collaboration.
The choir is going to sing four concerts:

- Oct. 20 at 16.30: Church of Our Lady in Aarhus
- Oct. 21 at 16.00: Vestervig Church
