Classical Movements began traveling to Argentina in 1996. With an unmistakably enticing blend of Italian, Spanish and indigenous cultures, it quickly became a popular destination for choral and orchestral groups looking to experience the country’s rich musical scene and its exciting cuisines, landscapes, and arts. With Spanish-speaking members on the Classical Movements team wonderful concerts can be arranged in beautiful cathedrals, beautiful opera houses and world class concert halls in Buenos Aires, La Plata, Mar del Plata, Rosario, Córdoba, San Juan, Mendoza, Tucuman to name a few cities. Unique cultural experiences include tango shows, gaucho demonstrations and delicious meals all over the country. Argentina’s proximity to Uruguay, Chile and Brazil has also made multi-country tours another attractive option.

In 2006, Classical Movements established a choral festival called Melodia! in South America which attracted groups from all over the world.

“The National Symphony Orchestra was their first orchestra client 15 years ago, and the Americas Tour 2012 marks the 25th tour Classical Movements has arranged for the NSO.

“From billeting and concert-giving in the Loma Plata Mennonite colony in Paraguay, to singing with the La Plata University Choir in La Plata, Buenos Aires, this was a trip that we will forever remember as the trip of a lifetime—one that greatly expanded our musical education and experiences.”

“Love. There is no better way to describe the affection, admiration, generosity, appreciation, and sharing that took place between this impassioned orchestra and a joyous Cuban public.”

“Classical Movements, a Virginia-based company, handled discussions with Cuba on behalf of the orchestra. The company has arranged musical tours to the nation for more than 18 years.”

-Minnesota Star Tribune, Graydon Royce | Feb. 12, 2015

“The tour is being arranged by Classical Movements, the Alexandria-based concert tour agency and presenter which has made something of a specialty of Cuban travel over the last 18 years, bringing ensembles to and from the country despite the travel restrictions that necessitated special permission through the U.S. Treasury Department.”

-Washington Post, Anne Midgette | Feb. 12, 2015

“The Teatro Nacional, a 2,056-seat theater on the Plaza de la Revolución, was sold out. Two dozen photographers and videographers swarmed the aisles. The Minnesota Orchestra’s concert here Friday night was greeted not only as a rare chance to hear an orchestra from overseas, but as a symbol of the rapprochement between the United States and Cuba.”
