2019 SPRING TRIP INFORMATION

Spring Trip 2019

Sprayberry Music Programs - Band, Chorus, Orchestra

New York City!

It is with much excitement that we are able to present to you our 2019 Spring Performance Trip to New York City on April 2-7, 2019! This trip will be a great time for all of our music students to collaborate, celebrate, and make life long memories as we take our performing groups to one of the most vibrant musical cities in the world!

We will leave on April 2, 2019 and travel to New York via charter buses. We will travel through the night and arrive in New York City on Wednesday, April 3. While in New York we will attend two Broadway Musicals (the exact shows are yet to be determined), visit the One World Observatory, 9/11 Museum and 9/11 Memorial, take a cruise around the city, enjoy a guided step-on tour around the city with expert guides, visit locations like Times Square, Central Park, Little Italy and Chinatown, and participate in a clinic with a Broadway Musician. The trip will include all transportation, hotel accommodations, most meals, services of the tour manager while on the trip, taxes and gratuities, and a group t-shirt.

The payment schedule for the trip is as follows:

October 19, 2018 = $250.00 (Deposit)

November 18, 2018 = $250

December 18, 2018 = $250

January 17, 2019 = $250

February 16, 2019 $220

TOTAL: $1220.00

Payments will be made online directly to the company via their Gateway system. More details about handling payments via the travel company online system will be available very soon!

Also, the price listed is dependent on a specific number of students traveling (100). If we should be above or below that number the price might change a little bit. We don’t expect a change, and if one happens it would probably be relatively small, but we wanted to let you know that it is a possibility.

As a reminder, students who face major disciplinary action through the school prior to April 2nd will be removed from the trip, and no refund will be given. This is a reward for the students, but we must ensure that we are only taking students who we can trust to handle themselves the correct way while in New York. If a student can’t behave in school, it is likely they will not behave in New York, which jeopardizes future trips for the Sprayberry Fine Arts Programs. Thank you for your understanding!

We are also in need of chaperones for this trip. Please be on the lookout for information related to chaperoning in the near future. Chaperones will be selected from each group (Band, Chorus, Orchestra) in proportion to the number of students traveling from each group, and priority will be given to those parents who actively volunteer with their respective group. In the event we have a large number of chaperones volunteer, we will also lean toward chaperones who have a junior or senior.

This is guaranteed to be an exciting and rewarding trip for all participants. As always, this is an optional trip that is offered to all students in the Sprayberry Band, Chorus, and Orchestra programs and no student is required to attend. Please make sure all financial obligations are met to your respective organizations (Band, Chorus, and Orchestra) each month in addition to trip payments!!!!

We hope you all will join us on this amazing opportunity and look forward to sharing the sounds of our awesome ensembles with the world!
