Welcome to our 2013 holidays.
We hope you enjoy reading our 2013 holidays.Since 1999 John Whibley "Holidays with Music" has been organising a range of music holidays, from world renowned festivals to city breaks and small chamber music festivals in Europe, America and the United Kingdom. We will take you to wonderful and historically interesting places to listen to some of the world's best music, whether it be Orchestral, Choral, Chamber Music or Opera.
Over the last few years, in addition to our many visits to existing festivals, we have developed a few holidays where we invite groups of eminent musicians to play chamber music in beautiful places. In 2013 these will take place in Canterbury, two in France; Cucugnan in the Corbières and Evosges in the Jura region, and one in Cuenca in Spain. We are very lucky to be able to attract musicians of an extremely high standard to play for us at these ‘mini’ festivals.
Other exciting news is that after a few years break, we are returning to Santa Fe Opera in New Mexico in August.
We hope that you enjoy reading about the holidays and will be tempted to join us.
John, Helen or Richard will accompany our groups on all of the holidays to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible. We normally have some sightseeing, with well chosen local guides, but this varies according to where we are. Some holidays are quite busy, others are very relaxed, and of course nothing on the schedule is compulsory! It is our policy to give guests plenty of free time.
Although the holiday arrangements are made by us, we work in association with Specialised Travel Limited and are fully covered by their membership of ABTA and ATOL.
Hoping you will join us.
With best wishes,
John, Helen and Richard Whibley and Catherine Hart.
