Welcome to our 2014 holidays.

Welcome to our 2014 holidays, which we hope you enjoy reading.

We have compiled a great programme of holidays for next year. Our biannual holidays include Drottningholm and Lucerne. We are holding our second “Schubertiade en Bugey” after its huge success in 2013. The Organ holiday this year is “Footsteps of Bach” visiting organs associated with Bach’s life and work, culminating with two concerts at the Leipzig Bachfest. We are making our first visit to the Spanish “Música en Segura” festival in the beautiful Andalusian hills, with our “Chamber Music in Andalusia” holiday.

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.

John, Helen or Richard Whibley 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 its membership of ABTA and ATOL. 

We hope you will join us!

With best wishes,
John, Helen and Richard Whibley and Catherine Hart.
