Coming March 2022! On Tour @Carnegie Hall!
We are inaugurating our first-ever Carnegie Hall performance this March! Singers will begin their on-tour experience in a supportive setting. The performance is part of an Octavo Series concert, and auditioned singers will be performing as part of an all-established & combined choir under the baton of Elizabeth Swanson of University of Colorado – Boulder. This will foster musical growth, encourage performers to realize further artistic potential, and connect them with other enthusiastic musicians. All singers will return home having experienced something unique, special, and exceptional — an experience shared with peers from across the country.
Did you know? We offered our first On-Tour Experience in Spring 2017 to Cuba!
The FIU Concert Choir and music business students participated in their first performance tour/study abroad experience to Havana, Cuba during March 4 – 10, 2017! They were invited by composer Martin Palmeri (who had previously visited the Herbert and Nicole Wertheim School of Music & Performing Arts) to perform Misa a Tango for its 20th anniversary along with the Schola Cantorum Coralina and the Sinfonia Orquesta Nacional de Cuba in historical locations such as La Basilica Menor de San Fransisco de Asis, La Catedral de San Cristobal, and El Teatro Nacional de Cuba. The choir also visited El Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana for a day of music education.
The students learned performance practice, rehearsal techniques, and how music business is handled on concert tour in other parts of the country.
Your Worlds Ahead experience begins here!
In collaboration with various academic units at FIU and an impressive array of international partners, our School supports and promotes a growing number of study abroad programs experiences.
These short-term programs afford students the opportunity to earn academic credit through a personally and intellectually enriching experience. Past participants have expressed how living and studying in a foreign country not only deepened their understanding of another culture, language, and society, but offered the opportunity to develop valuable transnational competencies.
