Choirs and Bands
The Greek people love music and welcome performing groups with open arms! Greek vocal music extends far back into ancient times where mixed-gender choruses performed for entertainment, celebration and spiritual reasons… and music overall played an important role in the education system.
Fast forward to well beyond the Byzantine chants or the charming Greek folk songs, and a magical musical performance tour can be arranged for visiting performance groups. School bands, college choirs, orchestras, and adult and youth performance groups can experience a wonderful combination of performance and educational opportunities in Greece.
Expedition and Travel coordinates all aspects of performance travel. We will handle scheduling at the perfect settings for your group performances. Amateur groups might perform at a theater in a local school, or give a casual concert near an historical site, or even onboard an island cruise. Professional level groups might perform in a concert hall or a historical amphitheater under the stars, complete with concert promotion and printed programs.
There are prestigious events to which recommended groups receive official invitation and access to superior venues. A typical performance travel plan will also include time for the group to enjoy the local color and culture of Greece, with our attending to the timeline for transportation of instruments, rehearsal arrangements and the like.
On staff at Expedition and Travel, we have experienced performance organizers with an excellent understanding of the special needs and concerns of music directors and their groups.
