New York City is a microcosm of the United States of America. Nearly every facet of the US is represented here: different races, cultures, traditions, arts, musical styles, politics, and architectural designs, all blended together into this great melting pot. The “Big Apple,” as the city is commonly and lovingly referred to, is an iconic destination for student performance tours.
