We are looking forward to the upcoming 2015 tour season, which will include BYU Singers’ first visit to China and the Wind Symphony’s return to Japan and South Korea. We’ve also added Mongolia to the Wind Symphony itinerary.This will be my last tour season working at Performing Arts Management. Little did I think when I toured with the Program Bureau and BYU choirs as a student that I would end up managing off-campus touring for so many years. Since Performing Arts Management was founded in 1971, BYU ensembles have performed more than 10,000 concerts in a hundred countries—made possible by our friends the world over. I never imagined when I traveled to Beijing in early 1979 looking for a way to book a BYU ensemble that we’d send our 27th tour to China in 2014. I am fortunate to have worked with the best colleagues one could ask for. We’ve had a great team over the many years.
