Custom performance tours and festivals in Spain since 1995
Thinking on touring with your orchestra in Spain ? We had been working closely with youth orchestras organizing concert tours in Spain and Portugal for many years. Spain has a rich music tradition and your orchestra could travel easily between cities all year round. Amateur young choirs can perform in local conservatories, schools and auditoriums and semi professional orchestras will be invited to play in beautiful concert halls and theatres during the winter-spring season. During the months of June, July and August, concerts are mostly outdoor and are part of summer music festivals all over the Iberian peninsula that we partner with.
Big percussion instruments are available or can be borrow sometimes if concerts are in conservatories or music schools. But in general we sue to hire all the percussion and technical equipment your orchestra might need to tour, including instrumental trucks.
Besides all the travel arrangements that we can provide as travel agents to your group such as accommodation, transportation, meals ; we also provide your group with all the artistic arrangements you need for a successful tour in Spain , from the best selection of venues available to different encounters with other orchestras and musicians ( including if you wish some exchange concerts , master classes or clinics ) to participate at some of the most prestige international music festivals in the country or to participate in some of our own ones.
We do partner with music festivals, and youth symphony festivals in Spain since over two decades. We did organized concerts for high school orchestras, university /college orchestras, city youth orchestras, national youth orchestras or adult community orchestras.
