They are consummate professionals who take care of every possible detail. The Wartburg Choir sang in glorious cathedrals and concert halls to packed houses throughout Hungary, Austria, Germany and the Scandinavian countries. It is a tour that the students and I will never forget. Thank you Concert and Study tours! You are much more than a tour company, you are wonderful people and I look forward to our next tour experience!
Dr. Lee Nelson, Director of Wartburg Choir and Ritterchor, Wartburg College, Iowa
Concert and Study Tours arranged an outstanding tour for my students! The concerts sites were wonderful, and the educational and cultural opportunities that we experienced made our trip a life-changing experienced. We can’t wait to go again!
Dr. James Nowack, DMA, Wisconsin Lutheran Choir, Milwaukee, WI
The choirs of Crown College have traveled to Europe every other year since 1997 and have used Concert and Study Tours each time. The staff’s foresight in planning, amazing attention to detail, beautiful concert location choices, and expert on-sight tour management always provide the best opportunity for our students to absorb the culture, history and people of the countries we perform in. We would not think of using anyone else.
Dr. David Donelson, Crown College, Minnesota
You clearly have a beautifully-run operation there, and credit goes to all of you for your experience and wisdom in tailor-making a tour that the students and myself will never forget.
Dr. George Chu, Director Hamline A Cappella Choir, St. Paul, Minnesota
Touring made the world a little smaller and warmer for our students through the gift of music they were able to share. Not a single student was the same person upon our return. They learned volumes about history, language and music in the course of our tour, but also learned more about who they are and what they might become. I am deeply grateful to you all at Concert and Study Tours for all the hard work and the dedication on your part that it took to arrange this tour. Every single concert venue was terrific and just right for our choir! We can’t wait until the next one!
Dr. Kathryn Pohlmann Duffy, Grand View College Choir, Des Moines, IA
Concert and Study Tours provides incredible opportunities and experiences for performance groups traveling abroad at an amazing price. Concert and Study Tours are highly organized and no detail is missed!
Dr. Paul Torkelson, The Wartburg Choir, Wartburg College, Iowa
This was truly, for me and my students, an event of a lifetime. The reception that we received by our host families and the audience response was beyond words for us. Yours is a first-rate operation. It was our good fortune to do business with you.
Mr. Del Laqua, Director of Bands Williston, North Dakota
The youngsters were marvelous ambassadors for the United States, endearing themselves to the audience and in particular to the hosts with whom they stayed, many of whom wished they could stay longer.
Mr. Gordon Crabtree, Concert sponsor for the Wartburg College Choir Hale United Reformed Church, Cheshire England
The band’s visit was a tremendous success. More than that, they were wonderful people who delighted us with their friendliness. Thank you Concert and Study Tours for all you did to make it a success, for your friendliness and courtesy.
Mr. Byron Williams, Concert sponsor for the Bethel College Band Ynysybwl, South Wales
They are not amateurs, but future professionals. We import many artistic workshops from America, but rarely such an atmosphere as was brought to us by these students.
Review from Bratislava, Slovakia PRACA January 2, 1997 by Martin Lesan
The Choir gave us a real musical feast, the memory of which will stay with us for a long time to come.
Dennis Jones, Music Director and Concert Sponsor for the South Metro Chorale Holy Trinity Church Chester, England
I can tell you that all of our choir members and hosts enjoyed having this outstanding group of singers in our community. They performed not only an excellent concert program in our church, but we all enjoyed having them as guests in our homes.
