Your travel partner.
Music and traveling. It’s difficult to tell which passion Alyssa loves more, so it’s fitting that she gets to enjoy both in her role here at BRT. A self-described “travel enthusiast,” Alyssa played the role of family tour guide as a child, learning the history of their travel destinations so she could share her findings with the rest of her family. Alyssa discovered that she enjoyed sharing new places with her students as well when she became a music educator after falling in love with choral music in high school. Alyssa feels that the most exciting part of her job is working with directors to create the perfect trip for their programs, filled with the performance and clinic opportunities that she loved sharing with her own students.
My favorite travel memory
Over Thanksgiving 2016, I traveled to Paris and London with my mom on a girls’ trip to see the new Harry Potter play The Cursed Child. The whole trip was amazing, and it was so great to spend time with my mom exploring Europe.
My hobbies and pastimes
When I’m not working or singing, I’m usually playing tennis with my husband (and winning), doing yoga, running, kayaking, going hiking or to the dog park with my dachshunds, KitKat and Roman, reading, listening to podcasts, catching up on my favorite TV shows or baking.
My favorite book
The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. The book explains the four agreements you make with yourself to live a balanced life and to perceive the world around you in a positive way.
The personal touches that BRT provides. Your company gets to know the people they work with. I have never felt like a "number" with BRT.
Class Trip, 2018 DC tour
Columbia Central Junior High School
I appreciated the flexibility Bob Rogers showed us with the billing and various payments we had to make. We thought we were adding more and ended up not but you were great about giving us extra time to work out what we needed to on our end.

Plum Grove Junior High School
BRT is always on top of all details. Even when something has slipped through the cracks, changed, or something unexpected comes up, BRT is flexible enough to make the changes needed to make everything right. We have always been so well taken care of and the personal attention is what makes your company special.

The quality of service that you provided us with was second to none. The organization and communication were exceptional and we always felt we were in “the loop” on things both before and during the trip.
Band, ‘17-18 Orlando Tour
Amos Alonzo Stagg High School
BRT hands down has been the absolute best travel company I have worked with in my 18 years in education. My interactions with BRT have always been so much more than just traveling from one destination to another...the focus has always been on people and providing them with experiences of a lifetime.
