FIRST DEPOSIT and TRIP agreement due Aug. 21
The Dublin High School music department is taking a trip to perform at the 4th Annual New York “Sounds of Spring” International Music Festival in New York and will be performing at Carnegie Hall and the Liberty Science Center. In addition to the performances the students will have a workshop with a festival clinician, take in a Broadway show, enjoy a Festival Dinner cruise on the Hudson river as well as taking in some of the sights NY has to offer.
The company we will be working with to organize this trip is World Projects. They are an amazing group and we have worked with them in the past on our Ireland trip, which was phenomenal.
We are in the process of selecting the additional excursions but we expect the trip to cost between $2,300-$2,400. We will have an exact cost for you by the end of the month. In the meantime we need to get a commitment form signed so we know how many students to plan for on this trip.
Below is a rough idea of the payment schedule and the payments are based on a trip cost of $2,400. The dates of collection are based on World Projects dates of payments we have due to them. The final 2 payments may be adjusted once we have the final cost.
Airline Deposit and Broadway ticket: $250 is due August 21, 2017
Payment of $550 is due October 1, 2017
Payment of $550 is due November 1, 2017
Payment of $500 is due December 1, 2017
Final Payment of $500 is due January 15, 2018
We will be setting up a payment button on our website www.dhsirishguard.org . If you choose to make the payments via credit card you will have to assume the 3% credit card fee. This will be reflected in your payment (roughly $16.50 per payment for October-January). If you are paying by check you can ask your student to bring in the payment in an envelope with their name on it and place it in the white mailbox in the band room. This mailbox is locked and we check it regularly every week. If you want to make cash payments please contact one of the treasurers to arrange this. We don’t want large sums of cash being left in the mailbox. You can contact Rhonda Scharton at email@example.com or Patti Luba at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please fill out the New York Trip Agreement Form and return with your payment or note that you are paying with a credit card. Our first booster meeting is August 21, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the band room. We will also hold a trip meeting immediately following the booster meeting. Please be sure to join us.
We are looking forward to a great year!
