* Due to Covid-19, the 2020 Italy trip has been rescheduled for 2021.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.


Join us as we embark on a Performance Tour (and Shadow Tour) of Italy from June 25- July 3rd, 2021. NYS musicians will visit and/or perform in the towns of Florence, Montecatini, Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena, Orvieto, and Rome. Students will attend rehearsals, perform three concerts, visit historic landmarks, and much more. The Performance Tour includes the performers, the chaperones, and Sara Watkins.


The NYS Shadow Tour follows the performers and attends the concerts. The Shadow Tour members stay at different hotels from the performers, have their own tour itinerary, their own bus and their own tour leader. The Shadow Tour will have several opportunities to dine with the performers. A minimum of 20 participants are needed in order to have a Shadow Tour.  The 2016 and 2018 Shadow Tours were a huge success.
