Spring Trip 2024

Music Department Spring Trip 

Myrtle Beach, SC April 18 – 21, 2024

Dear Music Students and Families,

The MRHS Music Department will be traveling to Myrtle Beach, SC to participate in a music festival sponsored by EPN Travel’s Festivals of Music™. The purpose of the trip is to perform for a nationally acclaimed panel of judges, receive feedback and an onstage clinic with the adjudicators, compete with musical ensembles from all over the nation, hear performances of students from other schools, build and foster camaraderie among our musicians, and most importantly, to continue to build on the outstanding reputation of the Marriotts Ridge High School Music Department. This trip is a wonderful team building activity that the students will remember long after high school. We will be traveling on Atlantic Coast Charters luxury motor coach buses and staying at the Crown Reef Resort and Water Park. In order for our ensembles to be at their best, we need ALL students to participate. This is an HCPSS approved trip. Students must be allowed ample time to make up missed work and assignments in their other classes as they are technically “in school” during field trips.
