Work is well underway on our 2017 departures. We’re planning big and brilliant things for a real mix of youth ensembles from all over the UK.
Here’s our ‘A to Z’ of departures…so far! Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Netherlands, Romania, Spain and the USA.
We’ve secured performances for thousands of students in inspiring concert venues across the world, including French cathedrals, The Last Post Ceremony, Czech spa towns and world famous music festivals. Most groups will be accompanied by a dedicated Tour Manager who will ensure the smooth-running of the tour, leaving our lovely Directors of Music to enjoy leading their ensemble’s performances.
Groups are travelling by coach and air, and one group will be adding extra adventure by taking an overnight ferry from Scotland. Many music teachers have wisely enquired about doing a ‘rekkie’ before they arrive in resort and we’re very happy to be arranging this.
We’re particularly excited to be planning four concerts in Romania for an excellent school music department in Warwickshire and we’re delighted that they’ve chosen this unusual but highly rewarding destination…watch this space for news of how they get on!
Likewise, we’re looking forward to planning a Czech tour for one music teacher from Liverpool who hopes to recreate the exact tour he did whilst at school. Prague may have changed over the years, but those stunning churches are still standing and actively welcome choirs for unforgettable concerts!
It’s not too late to plan a 2017 Concert Tour for your ensemble. Drop us a line with your requirements and let our musical team of experts plan a perfect adventure for your ensemble.
