Any school choir can participate in a local or national choral event, but it’s not every day that students get to experience an international culture all while doing something they love – singing! The best part is that CE can help you arrange all of your travel accommodations so that you don’t have to worry about a thing. All you have to do is decide where you want to go and get your students pumped for the adventure ahead!
