International Tour 2023

AUSTA International Tour of Europe in 2023

September 14 – October 1 2023

Following the success of two highly regarded tours to Europe in 2016 and 2019, AUSTA National is pleased to announce that the AUSTA National String Orchestra will tour Portugal and Spain. This is a VERY different itinerary that was originally published, and we are ecstatic about it! You just need to be a current AUSTA member and at least an A Mus A standard on a string instrument to participate. After rehearsals and a concert in Lisbon, we then visit and perform in Salamanca, Madrid, San Sebastian and have our grand finale in Barcelona.

The cost now of approximately $5500 (shared) and $7200 (single) includes 17 nights of superior class accommodation, daily breakfasts, six dinners, transport, fabulous excursions, a 24/7 tour guide for each coach, and 5 performances in great venues. Our enthusiastic audiences will be awaiting us!

Please note that your airfares to and from Europe would need to be added to this. Importantly, for professional musicians, all professional development costs are tax deductible.

To register your interest and receive a more detailed itinerary, please email Stephen Chin – you will be thrilled to see exactly where we are going!

Stephen is the AUSTA International Tour Organiser and AUSTA Past National President.
