While Europe is still a wonderful destination for your performance tour, recently the trend among many ensembles is to explore less-traveled areas. There are many advantages to performing on “the road less traveled,” such as great exchange opportunities with local musicians and excited audience members from nearby villages that might not have ever seen a visiting performance before. Another wonderful advantage? The currency tends to be a bit more gracious towards the US dollar.
Some of my groups traveled to China, some to Poland, others to Eastern Europe, and so on. While I'm always thrilled to hear of their stories and adventures, I'm noticing that there are two destinations quickly rising in popularity: Argentina and Peru. And I can see why.
Argentina is home to Buenos Aires, sometimes called the “Paris of the South”. It boasts of beautiful rain forests and one of the most prestigious venues in the world: the Teatro Colon. Needless to say, all of my groups came back raving.
Peru is another wonderful destination that many ensembles are trekking to. With the chance of singing on floating islands made of reeds, not to mention climbing the mysterious Machu Picchu, it isn't hard to see why.
