"I have only the highest praise for the folks at Music Celebrations. I have travelled four times with them and every trip has been impeccably prepared. You will find your concerts to be well organized and that their long-standing reputation throughout the world will give you access to wonderful venues. As many of our tours have required a great deal of customization, I can attest first hand to their flexibility. We have considered every tour with them a resounding success and I would not hesitate to offer my highest recommendation on their behalf. "

"After all the travel companies I've used, and from my own experience as a travel agent, I can tell you & will tell anyone else who asks me that MCI is absolutely the best."

"Music Celebrations International arranged European tours for my orchestra in the summer of 1994 and 1998. Every detail of our tours went smoothly because of the efficient organization by the MCI staff. The concert venues were outstanding, and all of our concerts were both well attended and warmly received by the European audiences. The staff knows what we need and is competent and thorough. I love to tell people how many ways our trips were so perfect - all because of the MCI staff."
Dr. Mary Lou Jones Chair of National High School Honors Orchestra, KS
"I want to tell you what absolutely magical memories you made for our Madrigal Singers in Italy. The hotels, meals, and the concert sites were first-rate. I've taken a lot of tours in my day, the first in 1974. I have to tell you, nothing can beat what you arranged for us in Italy. When the singers are well-rested in nice hotels, well-fed, and well-cared for (the excellent drivers and guides) and booked in excellent concert sites, then they will do their best. Thank you for making our tour one that my singers and I will never forget."
Lucy Carroll, William Tennant HS, PA
"The experiences of the chorus members were treasurable. The performance venues were visually, historically and acoustically extraordinary. All were exceptionally located and attracted large and enthusiastic audiences. Predicated on their complete enjoyment of the tour, all of the chorus members would choose MCI as the organizer of their next tour."
Alan Heatherington, The Chicago Master Singers, IL
"We have the greatest respect for you and the very professional manner in which you served our needs and are now looking forward to working with you on our 2001 tour."
Wendell M. Smoot, President, Salt Lake Mormon Tabernacle Choir, UT
"Please thank all your great office staff for making this a great musical and educational experience for my choir! Our concert sites were unbelievable -- Canterbury Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and Salisbury Cathedral were outstanding. I still don't believe that we sang in all those beautiful places! I thought the singers grew with each experience. They seemed to realize that they were being allowed to sing in some of the finest religious places in the British Isles."
Steve Boehlke, Minnesota High School Chorale, MN
"The Miami Children's Chorus tour of the Northeast posed some particular challenges as it included both performances in locations we arranged for and your filling in the blanks. Kudos to you and your staff for making it all work. As you have probably heard, the concert at The Fairfax was a wonderful ending performance experience for the children. The synergy in the room was amazing to be a part of. The faces of the children and the audience told the story. It was great to see the children so pleased with their performance and for them to feel appreciated by the audience, which they were. Thanks again for all your help. I look forward to our working together again in the future."
Timothy A. Sharp,
Miami Children's Chorus, FL
"My recommendation is this: if you have an excellent performing group, go with a tour group whose performance is excellent. That would be Music Celebrations International."
