Choir Trip to Carnegie Hall

The Desert Spring Church choir is proud to announce that we will be singing Handel’s “Messiah” at Carnegie Hall with a full symphony orchestra!

Here is a tentative itinerary. All dates are in 2021:

Thursday, November 25th – Arrive in NYC

Friday, November 26th – 1/2 day rehearsal (afternoon)

Saturday, November 27th – 1/2 day rehearsal

Sunday, November 28th – sound check in morning, afternoon concert at Carnegie Hall, Post concert VIP reception.

There are 2 options that you can pick from – Performer or VIP Patron.

Performing Arts Partner (Performer) – $860.00/per person

The $860 covers the venue and everything that comes with it (stage crew, labor, ushers, house management, etc.) General rehearsal and sound check at Carnegie Hall. Rehearsals. Each performer will receive a security badge allowing him/her backstage admittance to Carnegie Hall and all rehearsals, the concert AND an invitation to the post concert Artist and VIP Patron Gala Reception.

VIP Patron – $430/per person

The $430 gets you a ticket to the performance at Carnegie Hall in the best seats at the time of registration (the earlier we register, the better the seats!) Patron’s also get a security badge to get into all rehearsals and backstage at Carnegie Hall. Patron’s also get invited to the post concert Artist and VIP Patron Gala Reception.

There will be $200 due at the time of registration. This date is still TBD, once we get the number of people interested then we can set the registration date. Our goal is to do this by the end of January! The earlier we register, the better! The $200 is not refundable, but it is transferable. If you decide that you cannot go, then we can transfer your spot to someone else (and they can pay you back).

Here is the tentative payment plan:

Performer:

$200/per person – Due at time of registration

$200/per person – Due 150 days prior to concert (before June 28th)

$460/per person – Due 60 days prior to concert (before September 28th)

VIP Patron:

$200/per person – Due at time of registration

$230/per person – Due 60 days prior to concert (Before September 28th)

Once you make the final payment (60 days prior to concert) then everything is locked in. At this point no name changes can be made. DCINY has a NO REFUND policy, they will work with us on name changes though! So if you pay the first 2 payments and then decide that you cannot go, we can use that money for someone else to take your spot (if we can find someone else!) We cannot get your money back if you cannot go.

Flights and Hotel accommodations will be your responsibility. You must arrive before the first rehearsal and you must submit all travel plans to DCINY at the time of the final payment (60 days prior to concert). DCINY does have a suggested travel agency that you can utilize. Artist Travel Consultants (ATC) can be contacted at 212-707-8170 or by visiting www.ArtistTravels.com

DCINY strongly suggests that everyone get trip insurance. It can help protect and reimburse you in the event of unforeseen circumstances. DCINY recommends Allianz (http://artisttravels.com/travel-insurance/)

Please let us know of your interest in attending by SUNDAY, JANUARY 17th.The earlier we register, the better! We will be able to add singers but spots can fill up fast! The earlier the better!!!!
