Music school trips to Paris
Paris offers some of the most exquisite venues in the world for choirs and youth orchestras, and as it’s only a four hour coach drive from Calais it makes the perfect destination for a school Music trip. The opportunity to perform in the Jardins du Luxembourg or even sing in Notre-Dame Cathedral, La Basilique du Sacré-Coeur, la Cathédrale de Saint-Denis will leave a permanent memory for your students. A great inclusion to this tour is a trip to Disneyland® Paris and after a day spent enjoying the park your group can perform at the Disney Hotel in front of a crowd of guests. One of our most popular Music trips, give your students a taste of what it’s like to perform in prestigious venues with a trip to Paris.
A HUGE thank you to the team from [Equity]. We couldn't do these tours without your guys. As usual you did a great job, see you in 2019!

We were most impressed with the performance venues organised for us - both churches were a joy to sing in. The inspection visit really helped prepare us for the concerts and Nicholas, with his wealth of experience and expertise, ensured that our tour went smoothly. Equity comes highly recommended and I would definitely organise a music tour with them again.
