We’re delighted to be adding Saxony in Germany to our school music tour portfolio.
Saxony offers wonderful opportunities for a mix of music groups. There are nice bandstands in parks and spa towns as well as churches and cathedrals to perform in.
There’s a great variety to see and do here from the vibrant city of Leipzig with its famous Gewandhaus Orchestra and Mendelssohn-Bartholdy’s house to the baroque beauty of Dresden with its Semper Opera, located along the river of Elbe.
Stay in a refurbished castle, visit the Escape Castle Colditz or see the craft behind traditional musical instrument making in one of the many worshops in an area known as the Musical Valley.
Watch this space too for our new school music tours to Norway - our first Scandinavian music tour is on it way!
