Experience the USA!
World Projects specialises in custom music tours to the USA. We have very strong representation in this territory and from this we can provide superior knowledge and service to ensure that your tour is an experience your group will never forget.
All tours to the USA incorporate a full time tour manager, school exchanges, performance opportunities, sightseeing activities and workshops with incredible clinicians.
The options are endless and only limited by your budget and the time of year you want to travel.
Here are a few examples of popular destinations we have provided to tour groups in the past:
EAST COAST INSPIRATION
An East Coast tour is a great option for a school wishing to see and experience the many sights and sounds that the USA has to offer.
Your group can take in the wondrous sights and enjoy a Broadway show in New York, visit the monuments and discover the rich history of Washington DC, or even obtain a truly new cultural experience through a visit to the Amish country in Philadelphia. The opportunities are endless and can be tailored around your group requirements and travel objectives.
A World Projects tour to the East Coast of the USA can also provide your group with inspiring workshops with clinicians from educational institutions such as the New England Conservatory of Music, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and Harvard University.
In addition, a World Projects East Coast Tour can provide your group with a number of exchanges and performance opportunities. Previous groups have had the privilege of being able to perform in well-known venues including Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln & Jefferson Memorial, the Kennedy Center and the Central Park Bandshell. We have also had groups work with such great ensembles as the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
WEST COAST VIBES
The West Coast is a fantastic and affordable tour option within the US. Its beautiful beaches and perfect weather greatly compliments the area’s rich history in the fields of music and entertainment.
A World Projects West Coast USA Tour can provide your group with a number of workshops, attractions and activities. Your group could visit sunny Anaheim to experience a Disneyland Soundtrack Sessions workshop, enjoy the marvellous beaches of San Luis Obispo, take a guided tour of Hollywood and the sunset strip, visit the Grammy Museum or even soak in the many sights and museums of San Diego’s Balboa Park.
World Projects can provide your group with a number of performance exchange opportunities with local schools and ensembles throughout yuor tour. In addition, a West Coast tour through World Projects will give your group access to specialised workshops from highly regarded clinicians from the area.
Previous groups have enjoyed such amazing West Coast tour experiences as undertaking mast class worksgops at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), taking part in the half time performance at a College Football game, being featured as part of Universal Studios Lights Camera Music Parade performance and performing as part of the National Fourth of July Celebrations.
SOUNDS OF THE SOUTH
A tour to the South of the USA is the perfect option for the group that wishes to receive a truly American cultural experience and see where so much of today’s popular music was born.
Your group can be swept up by the Southern Hospitality and enjoy the area’s many attractions including The Alamo and Johnson Space Center in Texas, The Blues Highway of the Mississippi Delta, The French Quarter of New Orleans, Sun Studios and Graceland in Memphis or even the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
Previous groups have also benefited from taking part in memorable performance opportunities in such venues as The Alamo Mission, North Texas University, The Moody Gardens Festival of Lights and many of the Jazz clubs New Orleans has to offer.
A music tour to the South of the USA can include travel to destinations such as Florida, where the group will be able to take part in a workshop at Walt Disney Resort or possibly perform for park guests as part of Disney Performing Arts.
THE MID WEST CLINIC – THE NEXT LEVEL OF MUSIC EDUCATION
The Midwest Clinic is the world’s largest instrumental music education conference. The annual event is held in Chicago during December and draws over 17,000 delegates each year. With its many concert performances, clinics, workshops and exhibits, it is the perfect event to launch your group onto a new performance platform.
World Projects has maintained a long-standing representation at the Midwest Clinic not only as a tour company for Australian ensembles, but also as an exhibitor. It is because of this history that we are one of the very few Australian tour companies to successfully have had Australian ensembles perform at this prestigious event.
A Midwest Clinic Tour can be tailored to include many other US destinations outside of the conference for your group to undertake in additional activities, sightseeing and/or performances and workshops.
HOMESTAY ACCOMMODATION – THE ULTIMATE CULTURAL EXPERIENCE
At World Projects we pride ourselves on maintaining a strong relationship with schools, venues, ensembles, and music educators within the United States and have our very own World Projects office located in San Francisco to ensure that we can provide the best service for all of our US tours.
It is because of this strong representation that we can provide your group with brilliant homestay accommodation options for any US tour itinerary. A homestay provides your child or student with the opportunity to experience a true cultural experience by staying with an American family in their home.
This option is very popular with groups wanting to obtain a true and authentic travel experience and also provides the whole touring group with the opportunity to undertake performance exchanges with the host school at each main destination. For the tour group’s safety, we also ensure that there is a minimum number of students staying at each home and that the parents contact the host family prior to the tour.
As with all of our custom tours, A World Projects tour to the USA will make all of the arrangements for your travel including flights, accommodation, ground transportation, sightseeing activities, performances/workshops and travel insurance where and if required.
