During Spring Break 2015, the El Dorado Band and Color Guard will be participating in the Hawaii Invitational! We went on this trip in 2010 and had a great time. There will be opportunities for the concert bands, jazz bands, parade band, color guard, and percussion ensemble to perform as well as educational tours to Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, a Luau at Paradise Cove as well as plenty of free time and shopping along Waikiki beach.

This trip is strictly VOLUNTARY and is not mandatory. You will find the itinerary, trip details, cost, and payment schedule in the attached document. Please look it over and plan to attend the first booster meeting on Tuesday, August 19, at 6:30p to get more information. There will be plenty if opportunities to help offset the cost of the trip.
