Initial New York Trip Meeting Huge Success

PrintDirector of Bands, Chris Carr, spoke to a packed house of parents and students on Tuesday night as he revealed the full details about the Trojan Band’s planned trip to New York City.

Mr. Carr announced the band will be traveling from Carrollton, GA to New York, NY during Spring Break 2017; April 5 – 8. While in New York, the band will be performing aboard the USS Intrepid, experiencing NY through many popular landmarks, tourist sites, restaurants, and also seeing Wicked the Musical on Broadway. Mr. Carr went on to discuss payments plans and options, deadlines, supporting fundraisers, and a preliminary timeline of related events leading up to the trip. After fielding a few questions from the audience, the boosters then assisted by addressing questions one-on-one and accepting deposits from those ready to sign-up. The excitement is palpable within the band program as everyone anticipates an awesome trip next spring.

To coincide with the trip meeting, the boosters also launched their online web store last night. At the moment, this online store will allow for convenient online trip payments, but there are also plans to expand the store to allow for spirit wear purchases, fundraisers purchases, as well as payment of band boosters dues. The web store can be accessed from the main menu bar of our website or by accessing the following link:

Those wishing to go on the trip, (open to those who will be freshman-seniors at the time of the trip), will need to pay the $100 non-refundable deposit by March 25, 2016 to secure a spot on the trip. After March 25, anyone wishing to go will have their name added to trip waiting list, in the event that more spots become available. For full details on cost, payment schedule, etc., please review the “Cost & Payment Details” link below.

To assist individuals with the cost of the trip, we launched two fundraisers last night also, “Make Me A Whole Person” and a Coca-Cola products sale. For full details and to get started with those, visit the links below.
