Successful music programs and great music travel go hand in hand. Our customized touring packages help define a sense of purpose for ensembles, build ensemble unity and musicianship and strengthen friendships. They help boost the ensemble's reputation in the community and enhance recruitment and fundraising efforts. And, perhaps the most important, they allow diverse cultures to come together and share in the universal language of music.
But, Encore goes beyond travel. We are committed to supporting music education at home. From our director workshops and professional networking events to our scholarship programs for young musicians, we continue to give back to our musical communities year-round. That's why "taking your music program to new places" is our mission. Whether "places" refers to exciting destinations or supporting your music programs at home, Encore is with you every step of the way.
