Northwestern musicians have opportunities to take their talents on tour. Our ensembles have traveled across Europe; including Spain, Estonia, Ireland, Finland, and more.
Northwestern Music Tours
Tours provide students with a unique opportunity to celebrate the mission of University of Northwestern outside its walls, creating cross-cultural experiences which can be transformational musically, socially, and spiritually.
- Varsity Men’s Chorus, Women’s Chorale and selected piano students go on local tours each year.
- Symphonic Band, UNW Orchestra, and Northwestern Choir tour annually on a four-year rotation of local, regional, domestic (U.S.), and international destinations. Past overseas tours include: Ireland, the Baltic States, Spain, Hawaii, and more.
The University underwrites some of the cost of each tour, but each student is responsible for an additional amount, which varies depending on the tour length and location. There are multiple fundraising opportunities with each tour, and many students can reduce some or most of their tour expenses by participating in fundraising.
