What is required to host an ensemble?

Each ensemble tour and performance varies slightly, however, hosts may be asked to help coordinate:

  • the logistical details at the performance venue (lighting, sound, dressing rooms, etc)
  • an evening meal
  • host families or hotel recommendations
  • marketing and advertising for the performance

The ensemble Tour Booklet is a useful tool in helping to organize & plan many of the details associated with hosting a performance.
