Where do you dream about going?

Let’s dream together.

At BRT, we don’t just help you get there.

We help you dream about where your music can take you next.

Discover some of our most popular performance and education travel destinations.

When it comes to choosing your group’s travel destination, we believe it’s more important to first identify WHY you’d like to travel before you decide WHERE you’d like to go. Whatever your goals may be, there’s a fantastic destination awaiting your student performers!

Student Group Travel Destinations Orlando


One of our most popular destinations, Orlando offers gorgeous weather, theme parks and fantastic performance opportunities. Our clients and their students aren’t the only ones who can’t get enough of Orlando – the city draws over 60 million every year! Our love for Orlando runs deep – we’ve been sending groups to The Walt Disney World® Resort for over 36 years, and have hosted The Bob Rogers Travel Thanksgiving Parade of Bands since 2010.

New York City

New York City holds more performance, education and attraction opportunities than any group could possibly experience in one trip. That’s why so many school groups choose to hit The Big Apple every year as part of their program. Whether students are performing on stage or being wowed from the seats, dreams are born once the curtain rises.
