As you know, every four years the El Dorado Golden Hawk Marching Band and Color Guard takes an educational music tour to give our students the opportunity to perform in a new environment while learning about other cultures. Once again, we are planning on attending the “Hawaii Invitational Music Festival” in Honolulu, Hawaii during Spring Break, April 14-20, 2019.
As of right now, the cost of the tour is approximately $2200 for quad hotel occupancy (four to a room). Please keep in mind that this tour cost is in addition to the normal “Participation Contributions” for Marching Band, Winter Percussion, Winter Guard, and Jazz Band.
This tour is optional.
Although we would love everyone to go, this trip is not mandatory in order to participate in the band program and will not count towards students’ grades. This is an extra opportunity to perform in addition to all of the other things that we do in our program. By committing to this tour, you are agreeing to sponsor the individual expense that it will take for your son/daughter to participate in this tour.
