Whatever your type of ensemble, you will perform in venues carefully chosen to suit your needs. We aim for all of your concerts to be well attended by hospitable, friendly patrons who will appreciate the efforts of your ensemble.
Churches, cathedrals, spa halls and bandstands are just some of the venues we use, or you may wish to perform at a local festival, immersing yourself in the local culture.
See yourself appear in local papers and on posters that announce your performances. Take part in attracting your audience by displaying our free concert board and posters.
We work hard to generate excellent attendance at each concert, as we understand that an appreciative audience makes all the difference.
We understand that as well as providing performance opportunities for ensembles, music tours are also considered as a holiday for many groups. All hotels and hostels are suitable for music ensembles with many offering rehearsal space and instrument storage. Rooms are normally twin or single rooms. Generally, rooms are en-suite.
We help to make your accommodation a good base for your tour and work with a variety of hotels with fantastic facilities. Twin or single rooms are normally arranged, however youth hostels with multi-bedded rooms can also be used, depending on your requirements.
Before you set off on your music tour, you will receive a detailed and carefully-planned itinerary, tailored to your group’s preferences and requests. Each day will combine fantastic concerts with excursions and activities, as chosen by you. While you are on tour, your Tour Manager will assist with concert arrangements and publicity and as linguists they are on hand to help with translating.
Travelling by coach is the most economical and flexible way to tour. Be collected from your meeting point and arrive at your destination in comfort on air-conditioned, high specification coaches. Enjoy the freedom of your own vehicle whilst on tour and travel in comfort with reclining seats and toilet.
If you have many instruments to transport you can, at an affordable cost, take a trailer with you. Upon booking, we ask you provide us with a list of the equipment you wish to take on tour. If we consider the storage space within the coach is insufficient, we will, where possible, arrange a trailer for you (which will incur a supplement) or advise that you take an instrument van. We can also provide one for you at an additional charge.
Eurostar is a fantastic way for choirs, or instrumental groups with manageable instruments, to reach Paris or Brussels.
If you choose to fly, we can arrange your flights from your local airport as well as from London. Once you have arrived at your destination, we can provide transfers to your accommodation and local coach hire throughout your music tour.
We have so many happy music leaders who have toured with us for years. Here’s just one example of the great feedback we get from them.
Christopher Swain, Director of Music for Wycliffe Choral Society in Gloucestershire took his choir on a summer tour to Malta.
He said: "The inspection tour was invaluable and made the planning of the itinerary much more straightforward. Three great concert venues and a fascinating itinerary made our tour to Malta with Club Europe both hugely enjoyable and memorable for all the right reasons."
"As Malta and Gozo are so small we managed to fit in a great deal in a short stay and much enjoyed the variety that was on offer. I was very pleased that we managed to fit in the Azure Window on Gozo. Our group were very interested in the prehistoric sites especially Hagar Qim and Mnajdra. Our final dinner at the Medina which took a lot of negotiation by Sabine and Jovana was even better than I had hoped - the setting, the ambience and the food were all great and everyone loved it."
