Encore Tours

Rhythms International Music Festivals offer musical groups in the USA and Canada a unique adjudicated festival experience. Each festival is a non-competitive, educational event where ensembles perform in local venues for three expert adjudicators.

Every group receives a full hour on stage which includes time for their performance and a Masterclass with a clinician. The festival wraps up with an Awards Banquet dinner and dance, featuring a live band and jam session where students are invited to play!

Rhythms devotes all of its efforts in delivering an educational and motivational event available to all levels of music for every type of ensemble. Sample itineraries typically range one to four nights and are an affordable option for groups looking to travel closer to home.
