Wanted: Music Experts to Host a 2025 AmaWaterways Danube River Cruise!

"Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent." ― Victor Hugo


Nine Muses Travel has been a proud member of the League of American Orchestras for five years now, and their annual conference is a really special event. All the artists, talent representatives, symphony orchestra administrators, and volunteers share a passion for music, and they honor classical music's heritage while having conversations, creating programs, and composing new works that acknowledge and embrace who we as a society are today. The entire League are incredibly thoughtful professionals who take great care of their role in the arts in preserving and promoting the finest and the newest classical music works for as many audiences to enjoy as possible.

It was palpably a more optimistic vibe this year than the last few years, and I had another great experience exhibiting at our annual conference, which was held in Houston this year. I met with an existing client (working on a May 2025 symphony donor trip to Croatia), reconnected with old friends (like Tom Nazelli, founder of ArtsVision), and made lots of lovely new connections too. Plus, then I got to visit with Melanie (my high school best friend living in Houston), eat great food, and swim in her pool!


I also had a special opportunity to share that you might be interested in too!


Through my relationship with AmaWaterways river cruises, I gave them an idea a few years ago to create a classical music themed Danube River cruise, which actually started sailing in 2023. Now they have a new idea for this itinerary: for each 2025 sailing to have a Music Host; so they asked me to help in find music experts (musicians, composers, conductors, etc.) to be a Music Host.


In return for a free cabin (with a guest), each host provides two lectures and hosts a reception for the guests on board. AmaWaterways and I will help you promote your cruise, and you'll be listed as that sailing's Music Host for free global publicity as "your" cruise will be on sale to the general public.


I already have five talented people interested from the League and meeting with me and AmaWaterways to review the benefits and obligations for a Music Host, and we're still looking for more!


Please email me your bio if you'd like to be considered, and let's talk about this unique way for my musically inclined friends (who are comfortable giving lectures) to reach a broader audience while enjoying a beautiful cruise along the Danube River.


And if you know anyone who might make a great Music Host, please have them contact me. It's such a cool opportunity!
