2019 Europe Tour - General Information
Greetings everyone and welcome back to another exciting school year with the NU Choir. This year we are once again excited about the possibility of taking the choir on another European tour! Nevada Union Choir has embarked on a European tour every other year since 1981. These trips are truly remarkable life changing experiences! I hope you will encourage your son or daughter to participate.
On this tour of 2019, the choir will be traveling to England to visit and perform in the cities of Cambridge, Ely, Chesterfield, Lincoln and London. The trip is tentatively planned for April 12-22 during spring break with 2 days to be missed of school. This is an eleven-day trip and will be approximately $3500 per person. This cost covers nearly everything on the trip (flights, charter bus, driver, tour courier, hotels, tours and tour guides, breakfast and dinner each day) the only additional money needed is for lunch and souvenirs.
Some students will have other opportunities in life to travel around the world but it is less likely that they will be able to go with some of their closest friends; performing with a choir in some of the most amazing concert venues in the world! The acoustics in many of the concert halls, churches and cathedrals are simply breathtaking. There is a unique bond that happens between people when they create beautiful music together. We will spend 11 days together traveling to various cities; singing, touring and having a blast. I hope you will consider this trip for your choir student.
All students considering participating in this trip need to attend a very important meeting on September 11 at 6:30 pm in the choir room. Each interested student needs to also have at least 1 parent or guardian attend this meeting. We will have a representative from our tour company make a presentation of the tour and discuss setting up the accounts for all students and chaperones that are planning to go. Between now and this date we will need to collect a $500 nonrefundable deposit from each participant. Students may bring deposits to school. Check should be made to NU Choir. If there are not enough choir members needed to take the trip and we decide to cancel, then all deposits will be returned! Once we commit to going on the trip each tour participant should plan to make regular payments of $500 per month. If regular payments are made the trip will be paid in full by March, 2019.
Thank you so much for being a supporter of the Nevada Union Choir program and I look forward to seeing you this year!
