We invite you to consider being a FEATURED ENSEMBLE in our annual Carnegie Hall Spotlight Series. We feature 3 to 4 ensembles in a 35-minute spotlight and featured performance (40 minutes of Stage time) on the Stern Auditorium Stage at legendary Carnegie Hall! This event celebrates qualified ensembles that are featured in a solo performance on the historic Main Stage at Carnegie Hall, under the direction of their own ensemble conductor(s). Performance repertoire is varied and will showcase the high caliber abilities and talents of the invited ensembles.
This opportunity does not require the purchase of a “PACKAGE”, nor does it require a specific number of residency nights. This Festival/Performance ONLY opportunity is advertised at a SPECIAL RATE! Your participation includes all Venue rental fees, stage labor, security, advertising, audience development, concert programs, and concert management by Sechrist Travel staff. Email us for more information – email@example.com
We specialize in Custom Performance Tours to any Domestic or International destination designed specifically for your ensemble, your specific travel dates, and your budget. We offer amazing performance tour experiences at the best prices in the industry!
This particular festival is one of our Mountain Top opportunities. NYC and Carnegie Hall always make for an amazing experience! The reason Sechrist Travel is so different is that Sean Berg, Executive Director, is also a choir director, having taught HS in Iowa and New York City and currently director the 75-member Mill Creek Chorale in the greater Seattle, WA area.
Having this background and experience allows him the unique insight and expertise to anticipate the needs and expectations of ensembles on a Performance Tour experience like this!
