For Performance Groups

Student marching bands, orchestras, ensembles and dance troupes are all especially impressed by the prospect of a student trip to NYC.  With the help of an educational Travel Consultants staff member, a pre-scheduled public performance can easily be worked into the itinerary.  Or, band trips can be scheduled in sync with a Music Festival with or without adjudication (professional judging of musicians’ performance). 

Give students extra special motivation to perform. Band, orchestra and choral directors - create a performance trip to NYC with ETC. Work with a student tour company that has been organizing trips to music festivals for over 30 years.  Educational Travel Consultant works with bandleaders to coordinate the transfer of instruments; booking of performance venues in NYC, and making certain set-up is prepared on site beforehand.

Performance Venues:

-       Statue of Liberty

-       United Nations

-       Lincoln Center

-       The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine (Choirs Only)
