Updates:
  • 7th December: Deposits are now open! Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis so make sure you pay your deposit as soon as possible. If you have any special requests or requirements, send us an email at uow.chorus@gmail.com.
Important notes (as listed in the launch email – click here to read the email):
  • Places will be available on a first come, first served policy. There are only 92 places available and we expect these to go quickly so if you want to come, make sure you get in early! To confirm your place, you need to purchase the deposit and fill in the personal information form.
  • Due to the limited number of spaces, we are only giving places to singers and players who will participate in our concerts. If you want to bring someone else that is not a member of Chorus/Orchestra, you will not be able to stay in our allocation of rooms.
  • The hotel accommodation (package one) is a mix of twin/double (they can be either) and triple rooms. Therefore we regret to say there is no option of having a single room. Please bear this in mind. We will endeavor to allocate rooms to your requests but we may be limited in what we can do.
  • The hostel accommodation (package two) is dorm style accommodation with 6-10 beds in a room.
  • We will not be organising a group flight to Prague because of the number of different options available. If you do want to travel by alternative transport to coach, you should only not book your flights once your place is confirmed on the tour. You will still have to pay the price for the return coach transport as we need to get your seat to Prague!
    • If you are in this situation, please read this document for more details and suggested flights to take: Prague Flight guide.doc.
