English Concert [Sarah Fenn, Orchestral Manager]
"We are all back safely after a great tour and many thanks for all your help in setting it up"

Nashville Symphony [Tim Lynch - Director of Operations]
"Working with you is always a pleasant, uplifting experience well beyond the usual ebb and flow of a normal business relationship. There seems to be an ever-present thread of genuine kindness and appreciation running through all you do. I sincerely appreciate it."

Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra [Robert McGrath, VP and Orchestra Manager]
"Classical Movements' travel expertise proved beneficial in dealing with the myriad flight and travel issues we encountered while traveling to New York, helping to facilitate a successful performance. As usual, the CM staff was calm under fire and is a pleasure to work with in both the planning and execution of our tours."

London Philharmonic Orchestra [Ed Hossack, Touring Manager]
"Many thanks to all at Classical Movements for their professionalism, dedication, hospitality and good humor in helping to make the LPO's tour to the United States celebrating the orchestra's seventieth birthday such a success. The assistance and experience which Blue Heart [now Classical Movements] provided for our hotel arrangements, both in the long preparations before and during the tour itself, was and is very much appreciated by the orchestra and contributed in no small part to the success of the performances."

The Philadelphia Orchestra [Simon Woods, VP Artistic Planning and Operations]
"We've worked with Classical Movements since 2000. Since that time we have developed a very successful partnership. They are responsive, creative, attentive, and reliable. We couldn't ask for more from a travel agent."

Swedish Chamber Orchestra [Gregor Zubicky, Artistic Director]
"We are very pleased to have found Classical Movements to look after our US/UK tour in August 2004. To meet this kind of professional competence, where an understanding of our orchestra's special needs is combined with the ability to get great prices for travel and hotel, is an enormous help. It has certainly taken a great load off my mind to know that we can concentrate on the music!"

Dallas Symphony Orchestra
[Mark Melson, Vice President of Artistic Operations]

"Classical Movements provided the same fabulous level of travel-agent expertise for our Florida tour that they have provided for the Dallas Symphony in various trips over the past 12 or years. They worked closely with our staff in advance to determine our needs. They found good hotels that worked logistically and financially. They contracted a bus company that provided dependable, timely and customer-oriented service. They had a first-rate representative traveling with us to assist with check-ins and to troubleshoot, a representative who knew how to deal effectively with professional musicians. Finally, they provided accurate and prompt expense estimates which made budgeting easier. The experience and expertise of the people at Classical Movements give us a comfort level that removes much of the worry from the process of moving 100 musicians and their equipment over great distances."

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra [Michael E. Bielski, VP and General Manager]
"Let me thank you for the work Blue Heart's staff [now Classical Movements] did on our spring tour to Europe. [The Classical Movements staff] was able to work out the many intricacies of not only group travel but of individuals who had their own 'special arrangements to make'. Keeping everyone happy in an orchestra is not an easy task. Everyone appreciated the fact that when we arrived in every hotel, it was ready. If there was a problem with any part of hotel or transportation arrangements, a Classical Movements staff member was always in advance of the orchestra solving them."
