Singers and non-singers are all welcome.

Highlights of the 10-day journey are stays in Istanbul and Athens with a three-day cruise of the Greek Islands, stopping at Mykonos, Ephesus, Patmos, Santorini and Corinth. The choir will sing for Mass at churches in Athens and Santorini.

The Archdiocesan Pilgrimage Choir is led by Lynn Trapp, Michael Silhavy and Wendy Barton Silhavy. Since 1999, they have led tours, arranged by Peter’s Way Tours Inc., to Israel, Ireland, Wales, England, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, France and Italy.

Choir rehearsals are arranged once the roster of travelers is formed.

Trapp is organist and director of worship and music at St. Olaf in Minneapolis. Silhavy is a member of the archdiocesan Office of Parish Services and choir director at St. William in Fridley. Barton Silhavy is pastoral associate for worship at Our Lady of Peace and shared music consultant at Annunciation in Minneapolis.
