Perform America handled all of the travel arrangements for the MSU Chorale trip to the Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C., perhaps one of the most complex trips imaginable. Zoe Franciscus and the Perform America team handled each and every situation with great ease and calm. There was not one single detail missing from this trip, providing the students with experiences to be carried with them for a lifetime. Perform America truly listens to the needs and desires of their clients and finds the perfect way to fulfill the expectations. Without reservation, I fully recommend Perform America for group travel of any kind.

My choral group traveled to New York to perform with Choirs of America at Carnegie Hall with the assistance of Perform America. After initially speaking with Zoe Franciscus I knew that she and Perform America were the right choice for me. It was only my second year at NWSA, and they had some difficult situations with the previous director – I knew that this trip HAD to be a success to regain the parent’s and community’s faith in the program. Zoe was endlessly patient with me, giving me endless amounts of her time. It was the trip of a lifetime for the students, and I can’t say enough about the role that Zoe and our guide Pim played in making it a success. I hope to utilize Perform America again – please know that the personal touch of these individuals really made the difference for me. Thank you again!

The trip went off without a hitch and I think the students learned a ton, got very inspired musically, and will carry this experience with them for the rest of their lives. I’m so appreciative of all the hard work and organization that Perform America put in, and the expertise and high-energy joy that Robin brought to our group. She’s enthusiastic, knowledgeable, flexible, creative, and genuinely happy to be sharing her city with visitors. You are all fantastic, and we couldn’t have asked for more.

I’m sitting in the Tucson airport after a GREAT trip to Arizona with the Cincinnati Children’s Choir. It makes me very excited for our upcoming tours with Perform America! I will say that our tour guide is simply awesome. He was so knowledgeable and helpful. Made it fun on those long trips. I definitely want him to come to DC with Pensacola if at all possible.

The trip went REALLY WELL. Our tour escort was so much fun I rarely thought about how efficient and informative she was until later. And some of our kids not only got the chance to sing on stage with the band at the House of Blues gospel brunch, but a few got to jam with the TREME band! Talk about WOW! Thanks for all your work in putting this experience together for us.
