The experience of a lifetime for any performer!

New York is a very popular destination for music tours and is surprisingly affordable. Your students will enjoy performing at some truly wonderful venues, including the United Nations Building, Central Park and, for something totally unique, on board the USS Intrepid. Choral groups are also well catered for, with venues such as St John the Divine, Trinity Church and St Patrick’s all opening their doors for concerts and recitals. Your ensemble will also have the opportunity to take part in a music workshop at the Lincoln Centre.
