I cannot wait for the next singing holiday!
Small is beautiful
Small group, sustainable singing holidays
Singing Holidays are small-group, sustainable, and exquisite experiences for people who love to sing. Whether it’s choral holidays, folk holidays, or our 7-night luxury singing retreats, Singing Holidays is your opportunity to mix with the very best musicians from every genre while singing in the most beautiful locations throughout Europe and beyond.
You’ll be able to thrive and blossom within a safe and nurturing environment. You’ll make new, close friendships, and you’ll feel immediately at ease within a supportive atmosphere of like-minded people.
We think it’s the little things in life that matter the most. Therefore, we only ever take small groups on each holiday. That’s because we want you to eat in tiny, choice restaurants where mamma still cooks the food and stay in cosy, exquisite nests that feel like home.
With a small group, we can create those little, memorable touches that can make all the difference and focus on you as an individual rather than just a face in the crowd.
We want you to get the maximum from every opportunity. From the incredibly talented professionals who teach you, through to the inspirational venues where you will perform.
Singing Holidays is more than a holiday. It’s your opportunity to truly connect with the culture of your destination through music and singing, and to be part of a group of new, lifelong friends, who just love to sing.
Got a question?
You don’t need to read music to come on a Singing Holiday.
On our choral holidays, we will supply you with online sound files, so you can learn your specific musical line. If you can read music, great – but it’s certainly not a prerequisite.
In many ways, not reading music can give you a certain advantage and on some of our holidays (folk, world, music theatre) our experts will teach you the music by ear when you arrive with only the lyrics as your guide.
Either way – sheet music or not – we’re always on hand to help you into shallower waters if you ever feel out of your depth.
We love to make cultural connections through music and singing. To that end, we sometimes collaborate with locals and professional musicians and perform together on the final evening.
You don’t really know a place, until you know the people, and nothing facilitates that connection better than singing.
Singing Holidays are very much bespoke experiences tailored to the group. Because our groups are small, we don’t generally choose the music until we know who’s coming and the distribution of voice types.
At Singing Holidays our passion is to create a fantastic all round experience. Great accommodation, wonderful locations, excellent food and plenty to do. Even if we took the ‘singing’ out of ‘Singing Holidays’ you’d still have a wonderful experience. If you’d like to bring your non singing partner then they’re very welcome to join us. They will have all the same treats in store just minus the singing bit.
Almost. Singing Holidays include everything within the listed price except flights and any drinks purchased by us on your behalf outside mealtimes. From pickup to drop-off, we’ll be there to look after you, so you can fully enjoy your holiday.
