The Scotland trip will be a performing trip, with 2 concerts in Edinburgh and numerous opportunities for sight-seeing. The trip is under the auspices of Youth Music of the World, with whom the Andover Band & Orchestra traveled 5 times to the UK between 1996-2012. Youth Music of the World includes a wide variety of services including air and ground transportation, excellent hotel accommodations, meals (breakfast & dinner), guided tours both in London & Edinburgh including a full day excursion into the Scottish countryside, a 24-hour resource person to attend to whatever our needs are, Cancellation Insurance through Lloyd's of London, instrument rental for unusually cumbersome instruments such as harp and bass, and transportation via DHL of other large instruments. The cost for the trip will be $3695.00, with payments spread out over several months. There will be opportunities through our nut sale for students to reduce the amount.
Parents and other family members are welcome to come as well. This will be a memorable trip for all of us, and we would love for you to be part of it!
