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.

Supporting you
every step of the way

Creating your
perfect tour

Your quote will be put together by an experienced Tour Adviser who’ll be an expert in music tours and will know the destination really well too. They’ll work with you to create a tour to suit your group’s needs and meet your tour objectives.

Launching your tour

The next step is to get your tour approved and then get your musicians signed up to it. Our ‘Trip Launch Pack’ will help you with this step. This is full of resources (all free to download) designed to make your life easier at this crucial point in the tour planning process.

After
you’ve booked

Once you’ve booked, your dedicated Itinerary Coordinator will start work on the finer details. They’ll make sure your itinerary makes the most of your time and they’ll take on most of the admin tasks for your trip (including making sure your concerts are well promoted).

Support while
you’re away

Throughout your music tour, we’ll be just a phone call away (24/7). Before you go, we’ll send you a final info pack and you’ll be able to access all your tour documents via the free Vamoos app.

After
your tour

When you return from your tour, we’ll ask you to complete a detailed feedback survey, so we can continue to improve the service we offer. And we can start planning your next tour, so you can give your musicians and their families plenty of time to pay for it (and so it’s less stressful for you).
