Below is some important information for everyone to go through before we depart. A finalized itinerary has been sent home, please check your email or your parents email. Students will recieve their copy Wednesday morning (at 3:15 am!)

The tour includes breakfast daily. Have enough money to purchase 5 lunches and 4 dinners. Also as noted in the itinerary, no meals are included on the flights. In-flight meals may be purchased with a credit card but not cash. A stash of food in your carry on may be preferable.
We will be doing a lot of walking so bring comfortable shoes and dress in layers. Bring a small umbrella that you can keep in your backpack or purse. Ensure that all luggage is labeled with a luggage tag. Do not forget your band uniform! All black for Jazz Band and Black/Blue for Concert Band. We have fragile stickers for instruments and have suggested to students that they get a strap to go around their instrument case as the latches are not always reliable. Also, each student will have the cost of one checked bag included
