Chamber Orchestra - Tour
This exciting tour, the first international tour to be made by a GVSU ensemble, is made possible through the cooperation of our partner institution, Kingston University, and grants from the Music Department, CLAS, and Padnos International Center. While in London students will be staying in Kingston University Student Housing.
Out-of-pocket costs for each player will be kept to a minimum, approx. $300 plus incidentals incurred during sightseeing days. London is one of the most expensive cities in the world but much can be seen free of charge through walking tours and free museums.
All Chamber Orchestra members are expected to go on this tour. If you know that you will not be available for the tour, you should not audition to become a member.
