Looking to travel the world, but worried that recruitment could prove difficult? We understand that bringing your full ensemble to perform overseas may be difficult, so we have introduced several new itineraries that provide partial ensembles and small groups with the opportunity to perform in incredible international destinations.

We have several options available including our massed choir festivals, which offer the unique opportunity for ensembles to collaborate with like-minded individuals, share their passion with other groups, and perform with prestigious guest conductors. In addition to these performance opportunities, you will have the ability to travel with confidence, as Encore's protocols allow participants to safely and securely enjoy the world's most beautiful destinations, historic landmarks, and musical highlights.

Director Benefits

Prelude

Prelude is our 5-day professional development trip held annually in a musically significant destination, and it’s free for qualified Group Leaders and one guest. Prelude is an excellent networking opportunity, but it's also so much more. This one-of-a-kind event includes unique cultural experiences, unbelievable musical performances, professional development opportunities, and plenty of wonderful surprises!

Prelude allows Group Leaders to maximize the impact of their next performance trip by networking with tour managers and fellow musicians, finding inspiration from remarkable venues and unique cultural experiences, and experiencing the Encore difference first-hand.

Convenient Payment System

We know that collecting money from all of your group members can be a daunting task, which is why we have made the billing and collection process so much easier. All passengers are equipped with their own online trip account, and directors can monitor tour details.

Passengers can also sign up for automatic payments, which is a helpful tool for controlling your trip budget. You can determine your ideal payment frequency, with options including every two weeks, every four weeks, monthly, or quarterly. Enrollment is free, and payments are automatically deducted from your checking or savings account. The best part is that all participants who enroll in automatic payments are eligible to win a free trip, with winners announced in February of your travel year.

Graduate Level Credits

Through our partnership with Courses4Teachers and University of the Pacific, we are extremely proud to offer our Group Leaders up to three graduate-level professional development credits. These continuing education credits are accepted by school districts across the country and can be used to fulfill salary advancement and recertification requirements.
