CHHS SW/HHS Tour to Nashville, Tennessee from February 26-29, 2016

The Symphonic Winds and Heights High Symphony have planned an amazing tour for 2016.  This year’s tour will start out with an exchange concert in the Cincinnati area at Indian Hills High School.  Then on to Nashville where the musicians will benefit from clinics at Vanderbilt University, have a recording session at RCA Studio B (!), attend a performance at the Grand Ole Opry, and tour the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, and the Country Music Hall of Fame.

All this and more in 4 days, 3 nights, and all meals for a student price of just $375.  (Thank you to all for your terrific fundraising that lowered the price to the students!)

There will be a mandatory Parents Tour Meeting that will be held on February 16th at 7pm in the IMD.  Please plan to attend.

For more details about this year’s tour, please contact Tour co-leads, Linda Elonen-Wright at jlsgwright@gmail.com and Beverlee Day at beverleeday@yahoo.com.
