With stunning natural beauty, fascinating Māori culture, the flightless furry kiwi bird and an infamously large number of sheep, New Zealand delights and enthralls tourists. The active classical music scene is world-class; even local school choirs perform European classics, as well as Māori traditional music, providing rich opportunities for potential collaborations and performances with touring ensembles. Pair with a tour to nearby Australia to experience vastly different scenery and similarly rich musical culture.
Classical Movements has been planning tours to Australia and New Zealand since 1997. We maintain relationships with local festivals, conservatories, cathedrals, concert halls, schools, choirs and orchestras all over the continent. In addition, Classical Movements has arranged tours for numerous New Zealand and Australian choirs—including the Daley Road Singers, Women of Note, Australian Voices, New Zealand Secondary Students Choir and Gondwana Chorale—to tour Europe, Africa, South America and the United States.
