Tour

Please note: during fall 2021, we are continuing to utilize our groundbreaking Ragazzi Virtual Studio (RVS) system to rehearse online in real time from the safety of our homes while also working toward safe in-person rehearsals for vaccinated boys. We are also offering safe, non-singing in-person activities for choristers who have yet to be vaccinated. Once a vaccine is widely available to our choristers, we plan to return to our regular in-person rehearsals. Details for our touring ensembles have been announced.

Ragazzi regularly tours in the United States and abroad to develop the boys’ performance skills and build our reputation for performance excellence. Our Premiere (intermediate) boys and families participate in springtime weekend tours to locations within a few hours’ drive. Avanti boys undertake 5–7 day tours, including to domestic festivals. Concert Group and our Young Men’s Ensemble participate in more extensive domestic and international tours.
