Announcing Prelude 2024: An Exclusive Musical Adventure in London


We are excited to announce that next year’s Prelude, an extraordinary event that combines the love of music with the enchantment of travel, will take place in the iconic city of London, England from January 11 to 15, 2024. Prelude, which is complementary to ensemble leaders (and one guest) who meet the minimum number of international passengers, is centered around the exploration of personal and professional development, offering unlimited opportunities for networking, cultural experiences, and artistic development.

Now entering its ninth year, Prelude is a one-of-a-kind trip that brings together music directors, educators and administrators from around the world. Qualifying group leaders will experience the local culture and arts through various sightseeing excursions, culinary delights, and professional performances. For first time group leaders, it also provides a unique opportunity to discuss your upcoming trip with experienced travelers and learn more about how you can maximize your time abroad. And this year, London will be our magnificent backdrop!

London, a city steeped in history and renowned for its vibrant music scene, provides the perfect setting for Prelude. From the grand concert halls that have inspired legendary composers to the bustling streets pulsating with musical energy, London offers a rich tapestry of musical heritage and innovation.

This year, you will have the opportunity to explore the city’s iconic landmarks, indulge in its diverse culinary delights, and enjoy the privileged access made possible by Encore’s vast international network. Although the final itinerary is still being set, some of this year’s highlights will include:

  • Welcome reception and dinner
  • Concert attendance at a world-class venue
  • Optional site inspection visits to local venues
  • Food and wine tastings
  • Farewell dinner
  • And much more!

To ensure your utmost comfort and luxury, we have arranged accommodations at the Royal Garden Hotel, a centrally located 5-star hotel known for its impeccable service and elegant ambiance. From this prime location, you can easily access the city’s musical hotspots, cultural treasures, and vibrant atmosphere.

In addition to the main event, we are also offering pre- and post-trip options, allowing you to extend your Prelude experience.
