Jennifer Orkisz, a travel consultant at Educational Tours Inc., taught vocal music for 25 years prior to landing at ETI. As an educator, Orkisz traveled with her choir students and saw the value of student travel firsthand. “They loved it!” Orkisz said. “Traveling with my ensembles gave my students new venues to sing in, time with professionals in clinics and the ability to see professional level performances and was a great recruitment tool. It also made me realize that with the choir trips we took, many of my students were able to travel for the first time!”
