Encouraging the ambitions of young musicians and providing them with special performance opportunities is at the heart of what we do. As singers and musicians ourselves, we’re dedicated to creating unforgettable, international concert tours for youth and school groups. With a range of inspiring destinations and spectacular venues to choose from, we’ll work with you to create a tour that meets all your musical needs, as well as let you experience the local culture to its full.
Why we're specialists in...
We’re well accustomed to the needs of choirs and offer a variety of inspiring destinations perfectly suited for choral groups. From prestigious cathedrals and churches to beautiful parks and gardens, we have a range of stunning venues to suit any repertoire, where the acoustics, stage size and venue type are perfectly matched to your choir.
Whether you’re a concert, brass or jazz band, we can tailor a tour to suit all musical styles. We understand the needs of bands, which is why we’ll recommend the most appropriate way to transport and store your instruments, with the option of hiring them out. From quaint bandstands and colonnades to lively jazz clubs and market squares, we’ve handpicked the best venues that are perfect for bands.
From bustling market squares and scenic bandstands to beautiful churches, we offer a range of superb venues and destinations that are tailored to orchestras. We know how important your instruments are, which is why we’ll recommend the most suitable way to transport and store them, with the alternative option of hiring them out.
We work with tourist boards, venues and online outlets to publicise your concerts on your behalf, as well as create and distribute eye-catching leaflets and posters to help gather you an audience.
We work closely with airlines and coaches, which means we’re able to outline their policies in the very early planning stages, so you know your much-loved instruments will be carefully transported.
A Tour Manager can provide on-hand support and ensure your trip runs smoothly, making your life that little bit easier.
