Breathtaking landscapes, picturesque villages with brightly painted houses, and a vibrant music scene make Iceland an incredible destination. The population of fewer than 330,000 people is proud to welcome you to their unique country and enthusiastic to share their musical traditions and hear your ensemble perform.
The country's geographic isolation kept its musical traditions largely unaffected by outside influences until the 18th century. An example is its unique rhythm, called Hákveða, which has disappeared from the music of other Nordic countries. Another uniquely Icelandic tradition is known as Rímur—epic tales sung as alliterative, rhyming ballads that are based on poetry from the Viking Age.
Let us help you bring your choir to Iceland to discover this exhilarating corner of the earth first-hand. Spend time exchanging music with a local choir and learning about each other's lives and cultures, look for whales in the waters just below the Arctic Circle, and take in the fantastic vistas at Thingvellir, the vast plain where Iceland's ancient parliament was established in 930 A.D. Of course no visit to Iceland would be complete without a visit to the Blue Lagoon, a unique oasis on the island's southern tip.
Enjoy a concert tour of Iceland and let yourself by immersed in all that Iceland has to offer as you share your music with local people.
