KIconcerts strives to provide the best in customer service.

Sometimes it goes unnoticed and other times we get wonderful feedback such as this from a parent touring in Australia with her North Harford student singing in the Voices Across the Pacific festival.

We received both my daughter's passport and the e-tickets this afternoon. 
I can't thank you and your fantastic team enough for the support these last few days. Not only has the entire trip been fun, interesting and extremely well organized, the assistance of Marilyn and Larina these last 24 hours in particular have been a Godsend. They have gone above and beyond to help ease our burden during a very stressful time. 
You should be so proud of your team. I believe it was Thoreau who said, "To affect the quality of the day ... that is the highest of the arts". To extend oneself in the service of others is not typically found in the professional world today. Good work for fostering such a culture. 
We greatly appreciate KI an will highly, highly recommend your company in the future.

KI’s golden summer ends - 2015/16 planning underway

We trust you’ve had a great summer and hope to chat about 2015/16 touring opportunities before you get busier again.

Our summer season took off when we hosted the Texas Children’s Choir for D Day celebrations in Northern France.

After Eric Stark’s Vivaldi Festival in Rome, we hosted 3 festivals simultaneously: Henry Leck in Austria, Joshua Habermann and Elena Sharkova in Italy and Frank Ticheli in England. In between we operated many unique custom tours across Europe, Central America and were delighted to re-introduce Greece to our ensembles.

Our festival year finished with the Sydney Opera House festival conducted by Heather J. Buchanan at the same time as we hosted the Linn-Benton Community College at the World Choir Games in Riga. LBCC won the top gold award in one of their categories. We were so proud to be associated with Linn-Benton’s golden moment which capped off a busy and successful summer for KIconcerts.

Could we borrow a few minutes of your time to discuss your next international tour before you get swept up in the coming musical year? We have great custom tour options and festival destinations still available in 2015 as well unique 2016 festivals to introduce you to including: Dilworth in Austria, Leck in the South of France, Hella Johnson in Italy and Wyatt in Hungary.

Please remember that we’d be happy to fly you to Colorado to meet the KI team if this is your first tour with us. Our testimonials attest to the basis of our success being great relationships with you, the client.

Let’s be in touch soon
