2020 Instrumental Spring Trips

Due to the global COVID-19 crisis this year’s trips have been cancelled.

Read the letter from Mr. Norris


Each performing ensemble of The Swanson Music Department will participate in a spring music festival trip this year. Not only do these trips provide a fun-filled reward for a year of musical effort, they also afford us an opportunity to be evaluated by a panel of reputable music educators (usually university band directors). This feedback is helpful in giving both the students and director some fresh ideas and suggestions for ways to grow and improve as musicians.

Chaperones must go through the APS Volunteer Application process.
