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
