BAND TRIP

The band trip for 2016-2017 will be a trip to NEW YORK CITY and it will fall immediately after graduation (first week of June after school is out – roughly June 3-7).  This takes the students out of the least amount of class and helps with the conflicts testing schedules.   Payments will start May of this year to keep costs affordable for parents.  More info to come!  This trip is not required – all band students encouraged and welcome!  We will be performing in a great concert hall (either Avery Fisher or Carnegie Hall depending on price) as well as sight-seeing, taking in a few shows and visiting various museums and hot spots.
