Head of Music from a Buckinghamshire school just back from a school choir tour to Valkenburg told us: “This was easily the best school-related experience of my career (12 yrs!). It was fabulous! Seriously fantastic!”
In addition to their concert programme, the group visited Beethoven’s House, the Valkenburg Castle and the historic town of Thorn. Of their Tour Manager, Maurice, she said: “He was helpful, kind, always calm, thorough and committed. He happily translated for us and answered questions about the Dutch way of life and culture, which aided our appreciation of the country.”
Speaking of her school choir tour to Flanders, below, Head of Music from a Cumbrian school simply said:
“As usual, the whole experience ran really smoothly. The coach drivers were terrific.”
