Title
H-7. Field Trip - Edgewood Jr./Sr. High Band, Orchestra and Chorus to New York

The tour will include workshops directed by New York professionals, a Broadway show, and a performance by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.  In addition to musical performances, itinerary arrangements are being made to visit the Apollo Theater tour, Harlem Gospel & Jazz tour, World Trade Center Site, Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall and the Carnegie Hall tour.

 

All travel arrangements are being completed through Kaleidoscope Adventure of Orlando.  We will arrange for local transportation to get our group to and from Orlando International Airport.  The cost per student is $1200 and the band, orchestra and chorus is working with fundraisers and area establishments to raise the money to subsidize this amount.  No student will be left behind due to inability to pay.  There is no cost to the district.
