From sea to shining sea, there are opportunities across our great country for meaningful and exciting touring. We know that choruses and orchestras around the United States will be anxious to resume rehearsing, performing and taking joy in the communal act of making music together, as soon as it is safe to do so – and that many ensembles will also be eager to once again experience the life-changing impact of performing on tour. Although we expect that international concert touring will present significant challenges for some time, Classical Movements encourages our clients to take this opportunity to consider the many matchless destinations around our own country.
