Pinnacle of artistic endeavour

The pinnacle of artistic endeavour can only be achieved by means of perfect teamwork: not only during the concerts, but also in the transport of over 100 precious, sometimes priceless instruments, stage equipment, music and concert dress from one concert to the next. The safe, punctual, perfect climatic transportation of such sensitive freight requires meticulous planning, effective coordination and a fine instinct on the part of all concerned during the entire transport chain.
