A school music tour to Croatia will allow your ensemble the unforgettable experience of touring this spectacular country, where Central Europe and the Mediterranean collide. You’ll be based in Opatija, a lovely coastal town on the Istrian Peninsula. This area is home to the unique Istrian scale, and folk music plays an important part in the local culture. A tourist hotspot, your ensemble will have the opportunity to perform to mixed audiences of international tourists and locals in beautiful churches, busy town squares and scenic sea promenades.

I love when I get the chance to go on tour with a group and see first-hand the dream that I've helped to make into a reality. – Alison Fox Music Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

The destination is a MUST for any sacred choir - to sing Holy Mass in St. Peter's is awe-inspiring and to perform at the Pantheon is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Thank you Halsbury for the chance to do this - the students could not have been happier! Overall, an excellent tour and would highly recommend! — Richard Challoner School , September 2018
