The value of music in understanding foreign culture cannot be measured. Our world is divided by philosophy, language, religion, wealth. Yet music has the ability to leap over the fences; to break down the barriers. Listen to a local musician, appreciate the artistry of the performance and you will have an instant friendship. Or bring your choir or performance group to a foreign audience and you will open doors and windows. Goodspeed brings your group to venues where the musical experience connects audience to performer; stranger to friend. Listen to the haunting folk music of the rich Irish countryside or the heartbreaking entreaties of the fadistas in old Lisbon. Or have your group perform in a once-in-a-lifetime setting such as the Salzburg Cathedral or in a Harlem nightclub or while setting sail in the Greek Islands.
For a taste of high culture, Goodspeed is your concierge for exclusive events such as premiers at the Metropolitan Opera House, performances of Wagner at Bayreuth, or the Chopin Competition in Warsaw.
