Join us on Wednesday 7th July at 4.30pm-5.30pm for a live Q&A with experienced tourers
Whether you’re a first-time tour organiser or a seasoned tourer, this is the event for you! We’re hosting a FREE concert tours webinar to allow you to get honest advice from experienced tour organisers and ask fellow music leaders those burning questions you want answers to.
In just 60 minutes, you’ll hear from some Musical Directors who have taken on the task of organising their group’s tours and are willing to share some of their top tips on organisation, safety, fundraising, rehearsing and much more. Having ‘been there and done it’ many times over the years, they will share their touring challenges and the techniques they use to overcome them.
Not only will you be able to take away their wealth of knowledge, but there will also be plenty of time to share ideas and tips with other music group leaders too in an open Q&A format.
