Performing Arts Consultants is dedicated to providing rewarding and positive experiences for Junior High, Senior High and College level students. We consistently strive to meet the ever-changing needs of performing groups, and are proud to be recognized as the festival company ‘in tune with your music program.’ We provide groups with the opportunity to perform in excellent concert facilities with America’s most dedicated adjudicators and clinicians. No aspect of your trip is overlooked. We understand that music, sightseeing, social events, and fun are all important motivators that help build your music program. Performing Arts Consultants is dedicated to working hard with you to achieve your goals.
Performing Arts Consultants, established in 1984, is a non-profit educational foundation dedicated to students of the performing arts. Since that time Performing Arts Consultants has been nationally recognized by thousands of directors as the festival company that is ‘in tune with your music program.’ As a music educator, you will find that our staff understands your musical needs and concerns as they relate to music travel and festival events. We succeed because our experienced staff consists of many former music educators and degreed musicians. In fact, Dr. Michael A. Mazzarisi, president of “PAC” since its inception, has led our organization to realize we have only one chance to get it right and create lasting memories in young minds. While we take pride in our attention to logistic detail and organization, we are equally aware of your group’s musical needs and focus on the concerns of administrators, chaperones and parents.
Performing Arts Consultants is the company that created and developed the unique music and dance programs for “Festivals At Sea”. Our “Festivals At Sea” programs offer students a cruise experience on board one of the following world-class cruise ships and cruise lines: Carnival, Royal Caribbean International, and Norwegian.
The Virginia Arts Festival appointed Performing Arts Consultants as the music festival organization to exclusively operate the Virginia International Music Festival for the city of Norfolk, VA. A highlight of the festival this year will be the 63rd anniversary of the “Parade of Nations” held in conjunction with all NATO nations. The Walt Disney World Corporation has honored “PAC” as a member of their student advisory board consecutively since 1989 and recognizes us as a “Preferred Travel Planner” to Disney Youth Programs.
