Youth Orchestra of the Americas


Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra [Katherine Cain, President]
"Our Classical Movements tour leader and our two French tour guides went above and beyond their job descriptions to ensure a fantastic experience for our group in France. No job was too small or too big for them, and they pitched in with moving instruments and setting up music stands as well as traditional touring skills. All three really personalized the trip for us!"

Youth Orchestra of the Americas: Inaugural Tour of the Americas [Debra Mckeon, Managing Director & CEO]
"Thank you for your inspirational spirit, unending commitment and excellent leadership that were key to giving birth to the Youth Orchestra of the Americas (YOA). There would have been no music of the YOA without your generosity."

Philadelphia Youth Orchestra [Louis Scaglione, Executive Director]
"The entire staff at Classical Movements, Inc. could not be more helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable. International touring, especially for youth orchestras, requires a tremendous amount of planning and organization. Classical Movements has not missed a beat."

Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra [Donagh Collins, Askonas Holt]
"It was indeed a triumphant tour and thanks to you and your staff for helping to make it work so successfully. This orchestra, and El Sistema... together we delivered something really special"

St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra [Peggy Neilson, Manager]

Northwestern College Symphonic Band [Julie Johnson, Academy of Music Director]
"The tour went brilliantly. Thank you for your work on making our tour a success and especially on the donation to help with expenses. [Classical Movements] was great to work with and I appreciate [your] efforts and constant communication."

University of Kentucky Orchestra [John Nardolillo, Director]
"Thank you, again, for your tremendous work in bringing our tour to China to life. It was an incredible, life-altering experience for our students. The venues were fantastic, the audiences large and enthusiastic, and all of the complex arrangements were handled smoothly."

Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra [Richard Giangiulio, Director]
"This was GDYO's most successful tour from start to the fifth encore on the final concert! Overall, the venues and acoustics were excellent, and the audiences were respectful. The itinerary designed by Classical Movements provided great momentum and allowed for every concert to be better than the one before. Tours like this are an incredible experience for our young musicians."
