The Monastic Choir of St. Elisabeth Convent will perform in Berlin on September 21 during the opening ceremony of From Heart To Heart Festival organised by St. Elisabeth Convent. After that, the Choir will travel to the United Kingdom where it will have concerts on September 22 – 28.

The sisters will sing not only during concerts but also during worship in several Orthodox parishes in London. A concert in Canterbury will mark the end of their tour.
