Bands and Orchestras

Strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion; the elements of instrumentation can be as varied as the types of ensembles that travel through Europe to perform.  Youth symphonies, string orchestras, jazz ensembles, and concert bands, among others, can all take advantage of the opportunities to follow in the footsteps of classic composers and perform for enthusiastic audiences.  Imagine the band marching along the uniquely intact Roman walls of Lucca, or presenting a grand concert finale in Orvieto’s Teatro Mancinelli; the occasion to perform on a nurturing and appropriate stage will ensure lifelong memories for you and your ensemble.


Instruments can provide challenges when traveling, from shipping and transportation, to rental and storage.  Maestro by Tumlare makes touring with bands, orchestras, and other instrumental ensembles a seamless experience for both directors and musicians.  We know that orchestrating a performance takes an expert hand, and understand the importance of access to comfortable changing facilities and restrooms prior to your performance.  Whether it be planning the perfect route for your marching band, or overseeing stage set-up with risers, seats, and stands, Maestro by Tumlare will be there, behind the scenes, to let your ensemble shine when the curtain rises.


Tulips of the Netherlands

DESTINATION: Amsterdam, Netherlands Located in the North-Holland province, Amsterdam is the capital city of the Netherlands. Rich in culture and activity, this laid back city offers something for everyone. Amsterdam is a great place for cycling along the beautiful canals, and taking in their springtime city-wide flower blooms. Countless musical acts come through this vibrant city, and free lunch-time concerts are often held throughout the year.

FUN FACT:  The largest collection of Van Gogh paintings is located within Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum, and the nearby Kroller-Muller Museum in Otterlo.

What’s with the dolphins?

We are often asked about our logo and mascots, “What’s with the dolphins?”…”You are specialists in performance and education tours, right?  Or are you an aquarium?”  And our answer is always, “It’s a long story. Yes. NO.”
