For nearly three decades, Encore has delivered life-changing performance tours in remarkable venues across the world. We have worked tirelessly to provide once-in-a-lifetime experiences to music directors and their ensembles, and we intend on continuing that proud tradition. We are also acutely aware that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, travel is going to look a bit different than anything we have previously experienced.

Our safety and support infrastructure has been a cornerstone of our business, and we have strengthened our policies and incentives for anybody traveling with Encore in 2021 and beyond. Similarly, we understand that many ensembles are dealing with unprecedented challenges, which is why we have worked tirelessly to develop new and exciting product offerings for individuals and small groups.

We know that traveling with a complete ensemble may be difficult, so we have created alternative travel options for musicians and ensembles of all shapes and sizes. Want to visit some of the world's most famous musical destinations? Our music appreciation tours feature exciting new itineraries filled with unique highlights that only Encore can provide. Still hoping to tour, but worried about your group size? With our new choral festival itineraries, you can travel with just a handful of performers or even join performers from different ensembles. These are several new options for interested travelers, so please read more about our new offerings below!
