Motivations for touring are individual, and reflect the different personalities of each ensemble.  Performance Tours provide the opportunity to make a cultural connection with local audiences and musicians, with joint concerts, receptions, master-classes, and festivals.  They also strengthen the cohesion of an ensemble’s relationships, allowing for deeper kinship amongst your group.

The rich musical legacies of Europe’s notable composers provide encouragement while visiting birthplaces, homes, and the environs and stages that encouraged their success.  Lessons come alive, nurture, and inspire, when following in the footsteps of personalities such as Mozart in Austria, Verdi in Italy, and Debussy in France.

Iconic venues and stages can provide the ultimate keepsake, a memory that lasts a lifetime, or even an epiphany.  A mass sung in Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral, a piano recital in Salzburg’s Mozarteum, or an orchestra performance on the grounds of Assisi’s Basilica of St. Francis; there is no mistaking their influence upon an ensemble’s performance.

Alternative perspectives can challenge approaches and provide opportunity for growth.  A successful Performance Tour allows for the focus to develop and strengthen craft with collaborations with local educators, conductors, and ensembles.

Ambassadorships are an important attraction for many.  In addition to the opportunity to leave behind the impressions of their music, many are heartened to include a service-first approach to their itinerary.  Performing in schools, hospitals, retirement villages, and for the troops, there is a special satisfaction in providing good will and uplifting moments for often overlooked members of society.

The spiritual connection that is felt when visiting important pilgrimage sites such as Our Lady of Lourdes in France, Oberammergau in Germany, and the Jasna Gora Monestary in Czestochowa, Poland  continue to fulfill and strengthen the faith of many ensembles.

Our experienced specialists will assist you in creating a distinctive performance tour, culminating in the realization of your dreams for an ideal European experience for you and your participants.  Life changing experiences happen all the time.  Embark upon yours by visiting with one of our expert consultants today

DESTINATION: Vienna, Austria

Located in the eastern part of Austria, this capital was named a UNESCO World Heritage city. Known for being a romantic, historical, and political city, Vienna was home to some of the most famous names: Ludwig van Beethoven, Sigmund Freud, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Johann Srauss. The people of this vibrant city love Gemutlichkeit (relaxation), indulging in all that the city has to offer.
