Spring Band Field Trip

Pending administrative approval, and in lieu of the earlier proposed Panama City, FL spring trip, I would like to offer the following local field trip, open to all members of the Moody band program and auxiliaries, including beginning band members:

Event: Preservation Hall Jazz Band (New Orleans, LA) with the Del McCoury Band, in concert
Location: Alys Stephens Center, Jemison Concert Hall, Birmingham, AL
Date: Saturday, March 9, 2013
Time: 5:00 pm estimated departure; 8:00 pm concert time; 11:00 pm estimated return
Cost: $50.00 per person
Reservations: Due by February 22nd (Sell 8 Cosmic Bowling tickets and you're done!)

Included in trip cost:
  • Bus transportation to and from the event (minimum $10.00 per person value)
  • Buffet dinner at Jim N Nicks Homewood ($12.00 per person value)
  • Concert ticket ($60.00 value)
  • Possible pre-concert lecture/masterclass for our group (pending)
By going as a member of our group, individuals receive more than an $80.00 value in transportation, dining, and concert admission for only $50.00!

Stay tuned for more information. Registration and trip information forms will be available from the band room by the end of this week.
