This small tour, limited to 20 people, will study the art and music of two extraordinary European cities with two of Vassar’s finest scholars. Both Bart and Kathryn have studied and lived in Europe for many years and it is through their scholarship and expertise that we are able to offer this personal exploration of both cities.
