Our First Concert Tour since 2020
is about to depart!
In exactly four weeks one audacious youth orchestra will depart on a concert tour. This will be our first tour since the pandemic devastated the concert and travel industry.

The Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Hanrich Claassen will be touring with us for a performance in Miami. We believe they will be the first youth orchestra to tour post-COVID. A short tour but a significant step towards normality; riding together in a bus, dining together in restaurants, sightseeing, staying together in hotels, a truck with their instruments, rehearsals, and a full concert.

We have been here for you for the last 29 years and are financially strong, ethically focused, the same experienced staff, and remain the pioneering leaders in the concert touring business.

in the midst of Covid Pandemic

“Like so many other Indians around the world, I have been horrified by the widespread suffering in India due to Covid-19,” says Classical Movements’ Indian-born Founder and President Neeta Helms. “Wanting to make a difference beyond donations and being in a position at the center of the classical music world for three decades, I reached out to several of the many musicians of Indian origin who are making their mark in the United States and abroad.
Artists:
Reena Esmail, Piano & Composer | Vijay Gupta, Violin |
Saili Oak, Indian Classical Vocalist | Sherezade Panthaki, Soprano |
Dilshad Billimoria Posnock, Flute | Jason Posnock, Violin |
Rohan Ramanan, English Horn | Eva Schaumkell, Piano |
Priyanka Venkatesh, Violin | Vijay Venkatesh, Piano

Knowing the power of music to offer comfort and peace in times of suffering, it is our hope that this will bring some solace to people facing such fear and anxiety.”
