Performance Tours for Students
We know that for performing arts groups, rehearsal and practice at school can only go so far. The most important thing is to actually get out there and perform! We are constantly creating new and exciting ways for your groups to share their talents and have real-life experiences all over the world. Imagine your students performing at the Gershwin Theatre alongside Broadway stars, on stage at Lincoln Center or Carnegie Hall, marching in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, entertaining the crowds at a Disney theme park, or recording an album at a prestigious recording studio in Nashville!
Festivals, Competitions & Parades
Perform or compete at events around the country! Destinations like Texas, Orlando, and New York offer great opportunities for your students to show off their skills and see the sites at the same time.
Compete in the regional or national competitions. Perform for a panel of adjudicators at a festival. March in parades across the country, from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, to the Cherry Blossom Parade in Washington D.C., to the Rose Parade in California. You could even march down the streets of Dublin in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Whether you seek to plan a marching band competition or a trip for pure musical enjoyment, we can help!
Whatever your interest or wherever you want to go, performance opportunities for your band, choir, orchestra and dancers are endless! ETA is here to help plan your marching band trips and show choir competition travel arrangements—so the students can focus on performing!
Masterclasses & Workshops
Learn from the pros with a clinic, masterclass or workshop in band, orchestra, choir, dance, or theatre. Your students will have the unique opportunity to work and be coached by artists currently working at the top of their field!
Theatre and dance workshops such as dance break, stage combat, improvisation, audition technique, and ensemble musical theater taught by Broadway professionals await in New York City.
Instrumental masterclasses from top clinicians around the country are available in virtually any city where any tour can become a performance tour!

For Band and Orchestras:
Hailed by the New York Times for her “magnificently sweet tone,” Keve Wilson’s From the Band Room to Broadway combines memories of her high school practice room with stories of life in a Broadway Orchestra Pit, in a Hollywood recording studio, and on the road touring the world. In this 45 minute whirlwind telling of her life in music, students get to see firsthand the dedication it takes to have a career as a professional musician.
For Choir, Theatre, and Dance groups:
From Main Street to 42nd Street, a one woman musical starring Jacque Carnahan, chronicles her journey as she pursued a career in musical theatre. From a small town in California to the lights of Times Square, Jacque delights and inspires as she guides the audience through the ups, downs and in-betweens of pursuing your passion.
