Music Department to Travel to Europe

Talented musicians from BASH choir, band and orchestra are getting set to take off this spring for a 10-day trip to Europe to perform in internationally acclaimed theaters.

Over 200 students, and 16 chaperones, including teachers and parents, will travel to Prague, Vienna, and Salzburg.

Thursday, March 26th, students will take flight, arriving in Prague Friday morning. Tuesday, March 31st, they will arrive in Vienna. On Friday, April 3rd, they will move on to Salzburg, the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, then return home Monday, April 6th, one day after Easter.

“It’s my first time visiting Europe. I’m very excited, it’s going to be a great way to showcase our talents.” says Band Director Mr. Langdon.

The trip costs about $3,900 per student. The money covers transportation, hotels, and food. To defer costs for the trip, students have done multiple fundraisers including selling pies, wreaths, popcorn, and Gertrude Hawk chocolate bars. If a student participated in all the fundraisers, they might be able to defer about a third of the cost.

The trip will give students an opportunity to perform and play in historic venues and learn world heritage, Mr. Langdon said.

“I am excited to go! I am going to see new places, learn Europe’s music history, grow better friendships, and see what it’s like to perform in front of a large audience.” says senior flutist Morgan Clancy.
