Auto Draft

I have been planning trips for students for 35 years! Cruising is my favorite way to travel—only unpack once and enjoy all the food and activities onboard. Exploring all the destinations throughout a cruise is the icing on the cake and learning the cultures of the area is the cherry on top! I believe that travel is an education we can offer to students that they cannot get in the classroom. I want all our student groups to experience all a destination has to offer and encourage them to get out and explore! I love planning everything for the group from start to finish, making the trip as stress-free as possible!

In my free time, I love to treasure hunt—garage sales, antique shops, and outdoor festivals. As an animal lover, I volunteer at our local shelter and give attention to the pets in need. I have a rescue dog named GiGi, who is the love of my life!

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A veterinarian.

What is your favorite mode of transportation and why?

A cruise—you unpack once and wake up in a different port of call every day. It is your home away from home!

Which celebrity, living or dead, would you most like to grab coffee with?

Ricky Gervais.

What was the first concert you ever went to?

Rolling Stones in Stuttgart, Germany.

What movie could you watch over and over again?

Notting Hill with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant.

“Moving 450 people on 9 charter buses through New York City over the course of four days and multiple meals and attractions are no small task, but they had it planned out perfectly.”
Jay Drury, Director, West Virginia University

We have traveled with them four times and are currently gearing up for a fifth. Not only are they knowledgeable about music festivals and the travel industry, they are genuinely awesome folks to hang out with. It’s a pleasure every time we do business!
Shane Joyce, Band Director, Dickson Middle and Intermediate Schools

Million Dollar Band

“The Million Dollar Band staff felt like they could relax a little and enjoy the trip because all of the details were handled so efficiently by the Performing Arts Consultants staff.  I highly recommend anyone considering Macy’s or other events in NYC to contact them. They were an absolute joy to work with.”
Dr. Kenneth B. Ozzello, Director, Million Dollar Band, The University of Alabama

Melody Shanley


The bus, the workshop, the tour and the show were all professional and well organized!

My students and I traveled to Norfolk, VA, with PAC for the Virginia International Music Festival and had an incredible time! The students enjoyed the opportunity to play in remarkable venues such as Chrysler Hall and the Roper Center for the Performing Arts. Our marching band had the opportunity to perform in the Parade of Nations and get viewed by thousands of cheering attendees. We thoroughly enjoyed the Spirit of Norfolk Cruise, our trip to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg, and the main event we will never forget, the Virginia International Tattoo! Thank you to PAC for providing a memorable, musical experience for my students!” Greg Dalakian, Parsippany High School

I have been searching for an organization that truly understands the logistics of running an exceptional music festival. My search is over. Performing Arts Consultants is all of these, and more.
