Lucy Szymonski

Head of Concert and Educational Tours

“I was lucky enough to fall into the world of educational and music tour operating almost 30 years ago. It’s a world I love and never want to leave. I studied music at university, have always performed in loads of different ensembles and have a real passion for travel and languages so it’s a perfect fit for me.”

Of her own experience of touring, she says: “I remember very well going away on tour with one of my youth orchestras and finding how this new environment allowed everyone to make new friends. It made attending rehearsals after that so much more enjoyable.”

Ever keen to broaden her knowledge of the destinations to which our groups travel, Lucy has travelled extensively and knows Europe particularly well.

She feels privileged to work with a team of truly talented colleagues: “Everyone in our educational and concert teams, without exception, is focussed on creating the best experience for our clients. They are incredibly knowledgeable and skilled at understanding our party leaders’ needs and then refining the itinerary so that it works perfectly and fulfils the group’s aspirations and desires. They’re real experts and I’m proud to work alongside them.”
