Top New York City Student Music Travel Performance Tours


​What will you and your students learn at one of the top student music travel performance tours destinations in the USA?

As a school music director, you have the tools to make a great impact on your students.  But with the right ideas and opportunities, you can magnify that impact.

New York City offers the opportunity for you to give and become more for your students.   Because sometimes, travel can actually be the best educational experience for students as they are able to gain a range of personal and academic benefits.​

New York City is such a fast-paced city with so many things to do and see that it can be hard to know where you should spend your time.  No matter what school subject you teach, there is something for everyone at the Big Apple.  However, there is so much to explore that it’s impossible to see it all in just one trip.  

In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the top attractions and the student music travel performance opportunities New York City has to offer. 

Student Music Travel Performance at Carnegie Hall

Achievement feels great – really great!  But nothing surpasses getting your band, choir, orchestra, dance, theater or any other student music performance group take center stage at a location such as Carnegie Hall in New York City.​

Carnegie Hall was constructed in April 1891 and is one of the most distinguished venues in the world.  It is named after Andrew Carnegie, who funded the construction.

There is power in working with other people.  And at Carnegie Hall, staff members help music educators and their student ensembles get a chance to be part and perform in this once-in-a-lifetime venue.

Highlights include workshops and classes by performers who have been part of Carnegie’s stages.  Each workshop is centered around ensemble instruction and helping with classroom techniques.   

Music performance tours at Carnegie Hall are always a hit with student groups visiting New York City.  Getting to know the history, architecture, and sound of the building is an exciting opportunity for students visiting New York City.

During one of the guided music travel performance tours of this venue, your music students will walk the Stern Auditorium, Perelman Stage, Composers Alley, and take a peek at over 400 historic artifacts available at the Rose Museum.​

Performing at Carnegie Hall is one of the greatest accomplishments not only for music teachers but for students as well.  It can be a personal goal you can achieve.

Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

When traveling to New York City, there is no better place to perform with your music students than at one of America’s most iconic landmarks, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

Such an experience will be a memorable one for all students.  And right after your performance, your student group gets to enjoy and discover an educational experience at the very same attraction they performed at.

At 305 feet tall from the base to the torch, the Statue of Liberty is among the top things to visit in New York.  Although you can see the statue from Battery Park, you must take a short boat ride to Liberty Island in order to see it up close.

Once you arrive at the island, you can walk around the base.  If you prefer, you can climb 354 stairs (a 22 story building) to go right up to the crown but only if you made advance reservations. 

Your students will be intrigued by the Immigration Museum located on Ellis Island.  At this location, nearly 12 million immigrants were processed for admission into the United States.  

Exhibits at the Immigration Museum show the process as well as the stories of the immigrants’ journey.   

Landmark Churches and Cathedrals Student Performance Tours

Traveling to New York City is not just about a student trip.  

​It is an innovative, engaging, and entertaining experience that can be tailored to your music program to make it the perfect fit.

From the moment they arrive in New York, your students are empowered with an experience that will last a lifetime.  

You can enhance your choir music program and raise it above the ordinary with a performance at one of the New York landmark churches and cathedrals.  Receive the recognition of having performed at St. Patrick’s Cathedral,  St. John the Divine or St. Malachy’s – “The Actors Chapel.”  

This is not only a music performance but a showcase experience that will take you beyond your ordinary classroom experience and show teachers, peers, and family how awesome your students really are!

What’s the difference you ask?

If you are interested you will find excuses as to why it can not be done.

But if you are committed you will do whatever it takes to accomplish your goal.

Immerse yourself in getting the information, the skills, the tools, or whatever it’s you need to make your dream student music performance tour a reality.

Do not let anyone tell you it can not be done.

Because those that say it can not be done are the ones that get interrupted by the ones doing it.
