Naomi-Ireland2012November 13, 2012
Naomi Gamble Zupfer, Concert Tour Coordinator for Concert and Study Tours, a division of Travel Leaders, had the exciting opportunity to travel to Ireland and England in October 2012. On the ten-day tour, Ms. Zupfer met with concert sponsors in the Irish cities of Galway, Limerick, Cork, Kilkenny and Dublin. Oxford and the Bedford area were the focus of her two short days in England.

Ms. Zupfer stated, “It is not only important to find the perfect concert venues for our groups (choirs and chamber ensembles of varying sizes), but it is exceedingly important to establish relationships with these concert sponsors as friends and hosts for our groups. This is the main reason directors want to return again and again to places where they feel welcome, at home, and where the audiences come out in droves to support them!”

If you know of a touring ensemble who may be interested in visiting Ireland and the U.K. in the future years on a concert tour, please contact Concert and Study Tours to begin planning your ideal routing.
