Eligibility

All singers in Concerto are welcome on the trip. Cantata girls are eligible if they are at least 13 on June 1, 2018. Younger girls can be accepted on a case-by-case basis.

Cost

$3990 - discount if applicable (see below). Includes bus transfer between Choir Building and airport, flights, hotels and two meals per day, as well as sightseeing and musical workshops.

In addition, travelers will need money for lunches ($150). We also recommend an additional $150 for souvenirs.

Discount

Part of our performance-for-hire revenue for the year will be used to offset tour costs for every singer. We expect this to be approximately $100 - $200. This amount will be determined before the final May payment (based on projected revenue at that time).

Chaperones

We are looking for 4-6 chaperones to join us on this trip. The price is the same as for a singer - but there's no discount. Chaperones will be assigned groups of four to five girls (a mix from Cantata and Concerto) and will be the primary caregiver for these children.

Payment Plan

$500 deposit due by November 1.
$1250 by January 10

Final payment by May 1 ($990 max, minus the discount)
