Program #20749RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

If you like to sing, would like to have a great time with friendly fellow choristers, and would enjoy seeing interesting sights, you won't want to miss this program. Also, if Springfield is on your bucket list, and it should be if you don't already know it, then you have another reason to visit the city of Abraham Lincoln. My husband and I were there for the third time. Ann Kramer, our coordinator and Sue Hamilton,our director, are outstanding in every way, and it is a pleasure to stay at the President Abraham Lincoln Hotel, which is in walking distance to most of the attractions. For us the week is almost like a family reunion because we've been singing with many of these singers at one place or another for years, but newcomers are always warmly welcomed. Already we look forward to July 2015.

It's a family reunion! Actually, it's a choral singing workshop, but it feels like a family get-together because we have been singing with each other at various venues over the years. There is a special bond among us because of our love for singing -- a bond my husband, Gerry, and I have never felt at any non-choral programs, and we've each been to over 220. Newcomers are warmly welcomed so if you enjoy singing --there are no try-outs -- this Elderhostel is for you. Sue Hamilton is an upbeat, personable, and outstanding director, Springfield with all its fabulous Lincoln sites is a wonderful place to visit in free time, and great music plus the opportunity to perform it make this a week which ranks as a great experience for all.
