Choir Tours Information
Concerts and Audiences
For over 32 years, we have built up an ever-increasing network of concert organisers and promoters, who are there to make your performances succeed. Additionally, every year we visit many destinations to find new venues, find new ways to publicise your concerts and make new contacts to open up even more opportunities for you. The variety of people we work with in resort ensures that we’ll always find a venue ideally suited to your style and standard of singing. We request the concerts for the time of day that we know will attract the biggest audience, and distribute our eye-catching publicity in advance of each performance.
In addition, we send out press releases to the local papers, "what’s on guides" and websites, and your courier will take additional handbills for on the spot publicity.
We include a courier in the price of each tour: it simply makes your job as group leader much easier! They liaise with the hotel and concert venues, discuss your itinerary with the drivers and introduce your concerts. Many are musicians or sing in choirs and all speak the language of the country you are visiting (apart from the Netherlands and Belgium), leaving you free to concentrate on your performances and of course any associated excursions and social aspects of the tour.
24 Hour Service
Your talents combined with our knowledge, experience and up-to-date expertise come together to create a memorable and rewarding concert tour. Our small team of dedicated staff are a mixture of musicians and linguists, many of whom have worked in the destinations you’ll visit, and many of whom have sung in the venues that we can personally recommend to you. You and your concerts are the reason we’re in business, and we’re proud to be a tour operator that puts music at the forefront of what we do. You’ll have the personal attention of one of our specialist concert tour co-ordinators, who will be your primary contact point prior to departure. But it doesn’t stop there. As well as the on-tour support of your tour courier, there’s always 24 hour support available from our head office in the UK, where one of our senior staff is always on duty to assist if necessary.
Rayburn Tours is proud to offer you additional peace of mind, with financial security in the form of ABTA bonding and ATOL licensing.
