ADVANCED BAND SPRING TRIP INFO
Advanced Band will be travelling to Disneyland to participate in the Studio Recording Session like last year. The trip is OPTIONAL, but we hope all will be able to participate.  It is the weekend of April 17-18.  We will leave early Friday morning via charter motor coach, will stay overnight at the Ramada Maingate (across from Disneyland), students will have a 2 day park hopper ticket to use at The Magic Kingdom and California Adventure, and will participate in the recording session with one of the Disney Conductors.
The cost for this trip is typically around $250. It will vary slightly depending on the number of participants. Students can use their profits from the fall fundraiser (and the balance from any other fundraiser they have done the previous 2 years). This cost covers: travel, hotel, park entrance for two days and the recording session.
There is a non-refundable $50 deposit due January 30.
