DESTINATION

Starting from the pulsating metropolis New York one needs less than two hours on the South Highway in order to reach the contemplative small town Princeton. The city is famous for being home of the Princeton University, which belongs to the “Ivy League”, and is part of the community already since 1756.

Participants of the Sing'n'Joy event can casually indulge in the countless scenic attractions of the “Garden State“ New Jersey. About 127 miles of coastline along the Atlantic ocean, over 800 seas and ponds, 36 public parks, 24 historical sites and much more shape New Jersey’s multifaceted landscape.

Princeton, home of the Westminster Choir College, invites in February 2017 choirs from all over the world to experience intercultural meetings as well as the charm of its city and surrounding area.
