Board your coach and depart for Beantown. Arrive in Boston, meet your Encore Tour Manager and begin exploring this historic city. Have dinner together this evening at Fire & Ice then attend a performance of Blue Man Group. Afterwards, check into to your suburban area hotel for a good night’s rest.

After breakfast, provided each morning at your hotel, depart for downtown and gather for your Boston Duck Tour! The fun begins as soon as you board your “DUCK”, a W.W.II style amphibious landing vehicle. First, you’ll be greeted by one of our legendary tour ConDUCKtors®, who’ll be narrating your sightseeing tour of Boston. Then you’re off on a journey like you’ve never had before. Free time in Quincy Marketplace for shopping, lunch and browsing on your own. Located steps away from the waterfront, Faneuil Hall Marketplace is alive today as it was in 1742 when our nation’s fathers proclaimed it “The Cradle of Liberty.” The cobblestone promenades are filled with the music and jaw-dropping routines of world-renowned street performers and musicians. This afternoon board the USS Constitution, aka “Old Ironsides” then enjoy a group dinner and concert by the world-famous Boston Symphony Orchestra. Return to your hotel.

Your ensemble will have the opportunity to perform an adjudicated concert and participate in a Master Class/workshop with accomplished conductors and clinicians. The second part of the day includes a visit of the Museum of Science. Long respected as a leader in science education, the Museum of Science promotes thoughtful participation in today’s increasingly technological society. With over 700 permanent exhibits and ever-changing temporary exhibits, films, and shows, groups can encounter the fresh and unfamiliar, ask questions, and actively address the provocative issues raised by innovations in science and technology. Return to your hotel. Free time to prepare for the Banquet Dinner. All join for a pre-banquet get together followed by the Rhythms International Semi-formal Awards Banquet Dinner & Dance with a live interactive band where your students are invited to join the band on stage and perform.
