Advanced Band CCSD festival performance is March 20 at 2:40pm at UNLV Ham Hall. Admission is free and a HUGE Fertitta crowd would be AWESOME!!! We will leave school at 12:20 on school buses and arrive back at school at 4:30pm.

ADVANCED BAND SPRING TRIP INFO
As of now, with the preliminary number of students who have verbally committed to going, the trip should cost $270 ea. If a few more go than expected, this will cause the cost to go down slightly. Please bring in a $50 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit by this Friday to confirm a spot on the trip. Space is limited so please try to bring it in ASAP. Another $120 will be due by March 28 and the remaining balance of no more than $100 will be due April 25.
The trip is May 17 and 18. We will leave by 7am on the 17th and be back around 11:30pm Sunday night (there is no school Monday). We are staying at the Ramada Maingate and are traveling via chartered motor coaches. The cost of the trip includes quad occupancy room, transportation, 2 day park-hopper tickets, a Disney T-shirt, a recording session in the Disney studios with a Disney conductor (not Mickey...heehee), and continental breakfast Sunday morning at the hotel.
Students who have fund raised since they've been in band have an account from which they can draw funds to help pay for the trip.
