Often ranked as one of the top hidden travel destinations, Slovenia, with its picturesque lakeside castles, snow-capped Alpine mountains and up and coming vineyards, has much to offer all manner of tourists. For musical groups, Slovenia’s 1500-year history of Christian liturgical music and the 19th-century Romanticist rise in Slovenian operas and symphonies present worlds of new music to explore.

Classical Movements has been organizing tours to the Balkans since 1995 for groups such as the Philadelphia Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, Oregon Repertory Singers, College of William and Mary Choir and others. Consider a trip to Slovenia in a multi-country itinerary with Austria, Italy or Hungary or with Croatia, Montenegro and Italy for a truly compelling concert tour.
