Plans are underway for a trip to PHILADELPHIA, April 11-13, 2019. We are still refining the proposed itinerary, but the projected student cost will be approximately $575. The due date for the commitment form and deposit is Nov. 1. You can find the form and the itinerary under Band Forms to the left.
This price includes all travel costs, two nights in hotel including 2 breakfasts, 3 dinners, admission to Hershey Park, the workshop with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra as well as an evening performance of the PSO, as well as all performance-related costs (possible rental of equipment, etc.) Students would be absent for two school days (April 11 & 12).
In class, students were given a brief presentation with details for the trip. The current proposed itinerary is posted under Itineraries, so you can see what an amazing experience this is going to be for the students! We hope ALL Woodson band students choose to participate!
