“On behaf of all The Arts Unt team, the students and staff who travelled under your care to LA San Diego, New York and Chicago culminating in our performance at the Midwest Clinic last December, I would like to thank you unreservedly for a truly memorable touring experience.

From the outset, it was obvious to me and The Arts Unit music team that World Projects was going to deliver one hell of a tour. That is precisely what ultimately was realised. Given that I had intended to take on tour two diverse music ensembles, our flagship symphonic band and our jazz orchestra, the aim was to try to provide both groups with high profile and significant performance opportunities. World Projects delivered this in spades.

Thank you World Projects. We loved the tour, can’t wait for the next one.”

Stephen Williams

Chief Conductor Instrumental, The Arts Unit, NSW Department of Education and Communities Australia, Dec 2014

“I’d also like to send a huge thank you to Chris Gibbs from World Projects who – like last tour – went above and beyond to develop such a well thought-out and well executed tour with amazing ground staff and incredible advertising for our performances. Every performance was well attended by locals from the community and performing to enthusiastic and large audiences. Chris’ tireless efforts ensured that our itinerary was varied and well planned and he worked hard to ensure that all aspects and requests were accommodated with minimal stress for all involved.”

“The history tour to Europe organised for us by World Projects was fantastic. It was designed exactly for our needs and to our specifications and the organisation of it was outstanding. The price and value for money was better than many others we looked at. We will definitely be travelling with World Projects in the future.”

Christine Smith

Head Teacher History, Chatswood High School, May 2014

“Thank you for the work you put into our Concert Band Tour to Singapore. I am so thankful that I could rely on such a competent company to do all of the organisation while we concentrated on the music. Your regular updates where wonderful and provided me with information to pass onto the students and their families. From the moment we arrived in Singapore we were treated like Royalty. Every aspect of the trip was taken care of and, when we needed to make changes, nothing was too much trouble. Our accommodation, meals, school exchanges and sight-seeing were fantastic and provided the students with an experience they will never forget. Thank you again! And we look forward to organizing our next tour through World Projects.”

Robyn Phelan

Director of Music, St Lukes Grammar School, May 2014

“A very big thank you to you and the staff at World Projects. The trip was simply amazing and the people that supported us made the event even more special. Our bus driver Trevor and Tour guide Ethel need a very special mention and certainly made a positive impact on our students. Thank you for your professionalism with a very personal touch. We will be back!”

Simone Bailey-Hough

Head of The Arts, Nagle Catholic College, July 2013

“World Projects obviously ‘gets it’ and you have really fined-tuned your product – this was particularly evident on the final night where the roving entertainer energised a very tired group of young people and then at the very age-appropriate Festival Party. It was great to work with you and I am sure we will be working together again in the future!”

Louise Field

Performing Arts Teacher, Alexandra Hills State High School, July 2013

“I would like to thank you for the opportunity of taking part in the Pacific Basin Music Festival 2013. Our students had a fantastic time meeting fellow student musicians from across the Pacific. Our Exchange and Tutorial rehearsals were great fun and excellent learning experiences. The Festival itself was well organised and we felt very welcome everywhere we went. I have no doubt that our College Music Program will continue to grow and aspire to excellence thanks to the enthusiasm generated by our students attending the Festival.”

Phil Smith

Head of Instrumental Music, Nambour Christian College, May 2013

“Have just returned from a two week tour to the USA with my Wind Orchestra and Big Band (63 students/ 4 staff) I can’t give enough praise to World Projects for the fabulous travel experience they arranged for our students. Opportunities that were once in a life time events. Meeting, rehearsing and performing with brilliant musicians like Gordon Goodwin, Charles Vernon, Dr Mike Fansler. Fantastic homestay experiences in Sacramento and Washington DC. We had two fabulous Tour Guides – Phil and Ann, who did everything they could to ensure our tour was a success. This was the sixth tour we have done with World Projects. We’re already preparing for the next tour in 2015.”

Gavin Staines

Director of Music, Chatswood High School, February 2013

“It is both this attention to detail and the consideration for individual needs that sets World Projects apart. No problem was too big for their attention.”

Kathy Davis

Executive Director, Four Seasons Youth Orchestra, July 2013

“Having worked with World Projects for over 20 years, and knowing the new staff as well as I do, I can, without reservation, encourage any director to travel with World Projects. They will be well taken care of.”

Dr Lawrence Sutherland

“It was a very successful tour! I heard very little complaining and many compliments, thanks for setting up the tour so well. Kudos have to go to you and your team to all your hours of diligence.”

Phil Crumley

“ …your professionalism has been nothing less than exceptional. The event itself offered so much whether it be learning, meeting other students from all over the world or performances at world renown venues such as the Sydney Opera House. It is an event we would definitely be interested in participating again and will definitely recommend to others. We would also be interested in looking at other festivals you run in other parts of the world.”

Craig Millar

Instrumental Music Coordinator, Pimlico State High School

“I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you on behalf of myself, the staff and students who attended the 20th Australian International Music Festival. We had a great time both culturally and musically whilst in Sydney. The band particularly enjoyed the band exchange and still talk about the fun they had.”
