Proposal for Joplin High School band trip to Chicago to be presented to R-8 Board

An opportunity for the Joplin High School Band to perform in Chicago during spring break will be presented to the Joplin R-8 Board of Education when it meets 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Memorial Education Building.

According to the board documentation, the trip would take place March 17-20 and provide the students with the opportunity to work with the staff at VanderCook College of Music, one of the top schools for music educators in the United States.

The band will perform a concert at the Field Museum of National History and efforts are being made to arrange a performance by the Color Guard at the Navy Pier.

Band Boosters parents will serve as chaperones and the trip will be paid for through Band Boosters fundraisers.

The cost would be $540 per student with 50 to 60 students going.
