Customize YOUR own performance tour experience

KIconcerts: Tour Your Talent Your Tour Company

YOUR destination and dates
YOUR performance and touring balance
YOUR choice: traditional destinations or roads less traveled!

A custom TOUR sets YOUR talent free on 5 continents:

The traditions of Europe – Italy, Austria, Great Britain, Ireland – Northern Europe featuring the Baltics and Finland/Sweden, Southern Europe featuring Spain, Portugal and Greece, Central Europe featuring the Czech Republic and Hungary…Croatia, France, Poland, Germany and more.

Roads less traveled – Iceland (with optional European add ons), Vietnam, Australia/New Zealand, China, India, Cuba and more.

Build a custom tour from a festival – 4 days of festival and solo ensemble concerts then days of custom touring: Stroope/Ireland, Dilworth/Italy, Leck/Iceland, Broeker/Austria, Hella Johnson/Australia, Wyatt/Barcelona.

No-one knows YOUR choir better than you – the price that works, the security sought, the adventures yearned for, the grandeur of never forgotten iconic venues, the embrace of an exchange community in shared local concerts, the amount of independence or organization desired, the perfect pacing.

Be in touch for more information or visit us at booth 501 at ACDA in Minneapolis.

BARCELONA – Sing in the New Year with Simon Carrington – price reductions

I am pleased to be leading the annual KIconcerts winter 2017/2018 choral festival – the core program runs December 26, 2017 to January 2, 2018.

We have chosen temperate, cultured, historical Barcelona not only for its winter warmth but also because of the incredible value that Europe represents right now. KIconcerts has been able to reduce another $100 off the cost given the strength of the US dollar making the tour $2795 per person from NYC. Feel free to talk with them about pricing from other US airports. I can’t recall the last time travel to Europe was this cost effective!

I am creating a combined musical program of 30-40 minutes duration which will be presented after participating choirs have the option to perform individually as well. This will be a great celebration of choral music in the festive season between Christmas and New Year with the opportunity for your singers to ring in the New Year in one of Europe’s great cities.

One of the great things about festivals is the chance for smaller ensembles or groups of singers to have a quality musical experience by joining with others for the optimum 40+ touring price even if they have less than 40 singers (and non singers) joining us.

Please feel free to be in touch with KIconcerts regarding the touring aspects and directly with me in relation to the musical elements.

Have a great 2017 and I hope to see you in Spain next winter

Simon Carrington

Happy Holidays and cheers for a great 2017

KIconcerts - Happy Holidays, through the years video

Clients, colleagues, friends

Let’s say goodbye to 2016 confident that together we’ll continue finding ways to share the love, intensity and beauty of music around the world as we have over previous years.

The KI family honors your talent, your dedication and your vision. Good people, resolute in partnership, can achieve anything. We look forward to continuing to serve your community of performers and the good people of our musical world as we stage concerts on 4 continents in the traditional destinations of Europe as well as the newer ones such as Vietnam, Cuba and Iceland.

We are indebted to our Festival Leaders for directing our festivals around the globe – from Rome to Sydney, Dublin to Vienna and many cities in between. They are some of the finest conductors, directors, music educators on the planet and we are thrilled to be able to present them to you in this unique way.

We celebrate your spirit from world premieres in the Sydney Opera House, singing Masses at the Vatican, presenting the Evensong choir at Westminster Abbey through to countless other performances in grand venues with appreciative audiences as well as more intimate exchange concerts in community settings with local ensembles.

May the holiday season shine kindly on you and may we have the continuing privilege of your friendship and collaboration in the years ahead.

The KI team

PS We are open between Christmas and New Year as we know that is a great time for some people to be thinking about their next tour.
