2022 TOUR INFORMATION:
Dear Scarsdale families:
I hope this email finds you well during a much-needed summer reprieve. We are pleased to announce that our international performance and education tours are planned to resume in April 2022 for the SHS bands. Please review the linked PDF letter below from our Performing Arts Department, and please save the date of Tuesday evening, September 14, 2021 at 7:00 PM in the SHS Auditorium for our parent and student orientation meeting for our planned April 2022 tour to Spain. We will confirm this orientation evening date with you closer to the beginning of the school year. If you have any questions in the interim, please do not hesitate to email me over the summer.
As is always, our band tours are completely inclusive and open to ALL students enrolled in a large ensemble band class at Scarsdale High School (Honors Wind Ensemble or Symphonic Band). There is no audition requirement to attend the tour, and all are welcome.
Our tour dates are planned to be as follows:
Departure: Thursday, April 7, 2022
Return: Friday, April 15, 2022
Please note: if your family is celebrating Passover, we will be landing in the afternoon on Friday before the holiday begins. We also return before the end of Good Friday and before Easter. As in the past, there will be "tour extension" options to extend your tour if you wish to stay in Spain longer with your family and return later. We thought it most prudent to aim for an April 2022 band tour date given circumstances with rebooting large ensembles in the 2021-2022 academic year. Future tours will likely return to the usual February break time slot.
With deepest thanks,
