It’s been a great summer for specialist Concert Tours Operator, Rayburn Tours, having helped heaps of choirs, youth ensembles, bands and orchestras travel to exciting destinations, perform in fantastic venues and create memorable tour experiences.
You’ve picked a date, booked a venue, agreed on a programme, and now it’s time to get cracking with ticket sales. Thisguidance will lead you through a set of steps to help you effectively market your events. Whilst the guide focuses on concerts, the ideas will apply to other activities, such as membership recruitment, a workshop or a fundraising event.
Groups collaborating on joint projects and events can be a lot fun and hugely beneficial for everyone involved. There are things to be aware of that are different to planning normal events and we have produced some guidance that looks at planning a joint event to help with this. One area this covers is having a simple agreement document between the groups.
Collaborating with another music group is an excellent way of creating variety in your programming, as well as tackling repertoire you may not otherwise have a chance to play. This case study includes the motivations and learnings from one such collaboration: between Chantage and Nonesuch Orchestra.
‘Come and Sing/Play’ events are a simple but brilliant idea: you open up your group for a day, for anyone to come along and sing or play an instrument. This tool kit will help you decide what sort of event you want to run and give you practical advice on how to plan and run an event.
