Yale Concert Band
"Our eight-day concert tour with Classical Movements was perfectly produced, and gave us first-hand knowledge of the music and people of Mexico. Although we performed in Mexico at a time when media coverage about travel to that country was unfavorable, we found no evidence of anything untoward and left with a great sense of respect and appreciation for this beautiful country and its musical history. Our venues in Mexico ranged from the high end conservatory to an established chamber music festival to (by our request) a field in a barrio. Each was successful. We plan to travel again and always with Classical Movements, and thank you all for your commitment to personal attention, for it made our trip unique and the perfect showcase for our unique talents and mission."
Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra
[Chuck Moore, Executive Director]
"Under Classical Movements' direction, our 6-concert tour of Germany and the Czech Republic was flawless from start to finish. We enjoyed a comfortable flight itinerary, nice hotels, good meals, wonderful sightseeing, and most importantly great concerts. Our venues included three stunning contemporary halls, an elegant baroque room, a delightful castle courtyard, and a beautiful spa town. A Smetana festival performance and two shared concerts with German music schools were highlights that our musicians loved. We are all ready to do it again! The Classical Movements staff was awesome!"

Canterbury Youth Choruses
[Judith Willoughby, Artistic Director]
"When it comes to providing substantive, musically memorable, well-paced and engaging tour experiences, no one does it better than Classical Movements! The first national tour by the Canterbury Youth Choruses hit all of the right notes, providing inspiring performance opportunities during Evensong at the National Cathedral, a concert at Walter Reed Army Hospital, and expert facilitation of our sightseeing throughout our nation's capital, led by engaging, well-informed and highly competent tour guides. I would recommend Classical Movements, without hesitation, to any musical organization planning a domestic or international tour!"

Yale Alumni Chorus Foundation
[Sherry Agar, President]
"You did such a spectacular job of following the ever-moving target in the months before the trip, finding us the venues we needed and working with us to make the tour the enormous success that is was. And then once the tour began, there you were, always thinking of how to improve things, quietly taking care of the problems, from lost tuxes to too-many Delft passengers. There are many smiling YAC faces as a result of your hard work and great competence."
