Tour to the Netherlands and Belgium

  • Round-trip direct flights from JFK to Amsterdam
  • 2 nights in Haarlem, Netherlands
  • 2 nights Bruges, Belgium
  • 2 nights Antwerp, Belgium
  • 3 nights Rotterdam, Netherlands
  • 2 nights Amsterdam, Netherlands


  • 5 Concerts 
  • 2 of these are joint concerts with a local youth choir
  • Musical Workshop

All singers in Concerto are welcome on the trip. Cantata girls are eligible if they are at least 13 on June 1, 2018. Younger girls can be accepted on a case-by-case basis.


$3990 - discount if applicable (see below). Includes bus transfer between Choir Building and airport, flights, hotels and two meals per day, as well as sightseeing and musical workshops.

In addition, travelers will need money for lunches ($150). We also recommend an additional $150 for souvenirs.


Part of our performance-for-hire revenue for the year will be used to offset tour costs for every singer. We expect this to be approximately $100 - $200. This amount will be determined before the final May payment (based on projected revenue at that time). For 2018 it is $60.


We are looking for 4-6 chaperones to join us on this trip. The price is the same as for a singer - but there's no discount. Chaperones will be assigned groups of four to five girls (a mix from Cantata and Concerto) and will be the primary caregiver for these children.

Music opens a window to the beauty of the world.
At Philadelphia Girls Choir, we see music as the central piece in a cultural jigsaw puzzle. Through music, we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, our community and our world.

Philadelphia Girls Choir is an after-school music education program for girls 7 and older. Girls audition and are placed in one of the training programs based on proficiency and age. After the training programs, selected singers are asked to audition for the performing choir. All programs include public performances, some programs include summer camps abroad.
