Ireland Trip -- March 16-18, 2014!
The trip for next year will be to Ireland!!! We will be travelling to the emerald isle to have the orchestra perform in some amazing historical places and the marching band and color guard to march in the Limmerick and Dublin St. Patricks Day parades. It will be a fantastic trip and we look forward to taking a large group on the trip.
The cost of the trip, if we can get 120 participants, will be $2339 plus an instrumental assessment (should come in anywhere from $25-100, depending on rentals and baggage fees. We will fund raise to help offset this cost as well). All you need to do is go to www.acis.com, login in with Group ID#: 112040 and Group Leader: Stone. Find the register button and follow the instructions on screen.
The itinerary is here, so please look through it, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact Mr. Stone or Linda Reisz-Klein, who will be the lead contact person for the trip.
It'll be a great, once-in-a-lifetime trip, so you won't want to miss it.
Anyone can travel to Ireland, but not everyone can go and play music with friends!!!
Fall Concert photos are available here.
You can download or purchase copies of the photos online.
Featured Composer of the Year: Felix Mendelssohn
This year will we be featuring many works by the composer Felix Mendelssohn. We will be starting the year off with his Violin or Piano Concerto (student soloists need to audition during the first week), the Mendelssohn Octet (a group of four students to perform with a group of professionals), the Italian Symphony and many other chamber works. It will be a great year of his music, as well a music from other composers.
