Organizers of the one of kind immersion experience detailed the event in a press release:

Immersion concerts and jams integrate American Musical Ambassadors with the finest of European All Star players in performances exclusively for the handful of IGE participants and local charities over the course of ten days and nine nights. By design, each participant is woven within the fabric of every uniquely crafted daily experience. Together, participants experience intimate collaborations of curated supergroups, encounter art and foster community with their favorite musical icons.

Throughout Prague’s diverse urban canvas, Immersion participants enjoy daily and nightly concerts and unique musical performances across a palette of atmospheric venues, shifting from jazz hall to synagogue, rock theater to cathedral, chateau to vaudeville boat, disco to ancient pub.

Paul Hoffman of GSBG also shared his experience with IGE as this will be his fourth year as a musical ambassador:

“An IGE immersion is like no musical excursion you will participate in,” he said. “It’s incomparable to any vacation; becoming a community in a foreign land to appreciate culture, art and music is the way to get to know a city like you never can sightseeing alone. On Immersions you are simultaneously a traveler and at home with a group of common-minded people.”
