Who We Are

Music and travel are a powerful combination. That is why Perform America has curated a team with a passion and expertise in both. We desire to bring the transformative power of travel and performance to your program and your ensemble.

We see every trip and festival as an opportunity to celebrate the unique character of each musician while building a sense of unity and belonging through the universal language of music.

We look forward to working alongside you to create a memorable, meaningful, and cost effective tour for your choir, band, or orchestra.
