The San Dimas Choir Department is planning a tour for our Chamber Singers to San Diego to attend the WorldStrides Choir Festival in March 2019. The dates are set for March 22–24, 2019. The trip is optional but we hope for every student to go.
The trip will cost approximately $350/per student (based on 34 participants) and $175/per chaperone (based on 4) The cost will fluctuate depending on how many students plan on attending as it affects the number of hotel rooms and buses needed to accommodate our group.
We are aware that the cost of the trip may be a financial strain (especially for families with multiple students in the high school band or choir) but we are confident that we have explored every option – even traveling by plane – and have done our best to keep the price down. The San Dimas Choir Parent Organization has already been working and saving money for this trip, and they will be able to contribute money toward all participants, but the exact amount will not be known until we know how many people are going on the trip, and the success of our future fundraising endeavors. If cost is an issue please approach me at the beginning of the year so proper preparations and planning can be done.
For your planning purposes, here is the payment schedule that we have laid out: (please also know that we will be able to accept credit cards, with a minor fee)
