The Latest…(Sept 2019)
The decision has been made. The Music Department of Nauset Regional High School will be traveling to Ireland in April of 2020. We are excited about this trip for a great many reasons: 1) Ireland was the most cost-effective destinations of those we researched, 2) The performance opportunities are outstanding and will offer some unforgettable experiences, 3) We are working with a reputable and outstanding travel partner in Bob Rogers Travel and lastly 4) the experiences and memories for students will help them to experience the culture and heritage of this great country. We understand that this is a huge undertaking and are going to need the support of students, parents, school administration as well as the community to pull this off.
Students and parents are encouraged to register with Bob Rogers Travel and set up an account as soon as possible. If so inclined, you may begin making payments as early as next month to help spread out your payments.
The draft itinerary and projected costs for the trip may be found here.
Bob Rogers Travel also offers scholarships to select students that apply. To find out more about the scholarship opportunity please follow this link. Applications are due to Bob Rogers Travel by October 18th.
Spring Trip Summary
Nearly every academic year, the Nauset High School Music Department takes on some big challenges and adventures. Next year is shaping up to be a busy and exciting year! Special performance opportunities are already scheduled. Fund raising opportunities are already in place (see the boosters' page). Our Spring trips are educational, bonding, and extraordinary learning opportunities. In the recent past, we have performed in Dublin Ireland, Montreal, Quebec, New York City, NY, Boston, MA, Annapolis, MD, Philadelphia, PA and many other venues. Stand-out performances from 2017/2018 include performances at the Cobb County Concert Hall in Georgia (as well as at 30,000 feet on a JetBlue airliner)
Spring Trip Cycle
The Music Department has established a four-year cycle in their spring trips. This ensures every student has similar opportunities for travel and experiences. We are presently in year one of the cycle. If year three is a particularly ambitious goal, we opt for no trip the previous year to allow students/parents/boosters two years for fund raising goals. Our last large trip was in 2015-2016 and we traveled throughout Ireland with 103 students and 10 adults. In the spring of 2018, our combined ensembles in our Music Department travelled to Atlanta Georgie to compete in WorldStrides Heritage Music Festivals. Each of our groups was highly rated and performed extremely well.
