My name is George Nimmo, and I am the coordinator for our Music Festivals in Charleston and Cleveland and the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory Wind Ensemble Invitational in the Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall. Additionally, I am the person at Performing Arts Consultants that works with groups traveling Internationally and am a former band director in New Jersey. I graduated from the University of Delaware (BM 2008 Magna Cum Laude) and am just about to start my 5th year at PAC. My favorite part of being a tour operator is being able to witness the "WOW" moments for my groups and seeing the look on the students' faces when they achieve a "Gold" rating at one of our festivals, set foot in Old Town Square in Prague, or taste pasta in Italy for the first time. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé, Kim and am an avid hiker and mountaineer. I'm looking forward to working with you on an incredible trip for your student group!

Favorite travel destination:

Italy, without a doubt.

When traveling I absolutely must haveā€¦

Gallons of coffee!

Best advice first time traveler:

My best advice for first time travelers is to enjoy being in the moment. Put away your phones, don't sweat the small stuff, and truly enjoy the people around you, traveling to your chosen destination, and the opportunity to experience fun and educational attractions and performance opportunities.
