The value of music in understanding foreign culture cannot be measured. Our world is divided by philosophy, language, religion, wealth. Yet music has the ability to leap over the fences; to break down the barriers. Listen to a local musician, appreciate the artistry of the performance and you will have an instant friendship. Or bring your choir to a foreign audience and you will open doors and windows. Goodspeed brings your group to venues where the musical experience connects audience to performer; stranger to friend.
Goodspeed creates unique group tours for your church group or congregation. Visit with Church leaders in Rome; perform in the Salzburg Cathedral, watch the sun rise from the Wartburg Castle in Germany, take communion in a Portuguese chapel overlooking the ocean or attend the Passion Play 2020. Your group tour will focus on the wishes of the church leaders and the itinerary will incorporate off-the-beaten-path and back-door opportunities for the congregants.
