We are beginning preparations for our annual trip to the Reno Jazz Festival and we need your help. Our trip to Reno, Nevada is from April 25 to April 28, 2013. We would like complete the reservation process for the flights to and from Reno and in order to secure the best price and insure enough seats, we need to act soon. Therefore, we require the following from you:
• A commitment that your son or daughter will attend the festival – a form is provided here for you to complete and return with the deposit by Friday November 2, 2012
• A $200 deposit to reserve a seat on the flights due no later than Friday November 2, 2012 – check made payable to PVPHS Jazz Band – dropped off with the commitment form to the envelope attached to Mrs. Heimer’s door in the music classroom
The Reno Jazz Festival is held each spring in Reno, Nevada. One of the largest and most prestigious festivals of its kind, the Reno Jazz Festival is the highlight of the Peninsula High School Jazz Bands’ year. It is a wonderful opportunity for our students to attend jazz workshops, watch other top jazz bands perform and compete against some of the best jazz bands in the nation. In addition, well renowned professional artists perform and teach at the festival. The trip is most successful if ALL students attend, as each musician is needed to make the group a cohesive Jazz Band. The students will be going with Mr. Steiner and adult chaperones. To learn more about the festival, please check out their website at: www.jazzfestival2013.com/reno-jazz-festival/
We are reserving seats on a Southwest non-stop flight from LAX to Reno on the afternoon of Thursday April 25th. We anticipate students will board the buses for the airport after lunch. We will return to Los Angeles early afternoon on Sunday, April 28th. The anticipated cost of the trip will be APPROXIMATELY $600.00 per student. In past years the price included round-trip airfare, 3 nights’ hotel accommodations at Circus Circus, festival fees, 2 full breakfasts, transportation in Reno, Mr. Steiner and parent chaperones. Booking early will allow us to get the best rate possible and save us all money.
• Please fill out the form on the second page and include the $200.00 deposit payable to PVPHS Jazz Band and send it with your student by Friday November 2, 2012.
• An additional installment of $200.00 will be due in January, and a final payment by Friday February 22, 2013.
We will have a Jazz Booster Meeting where we will discuss the trip more in depth. If you have questions or concerns please contact either Amy Dean (310) 544-0474 firstname.lastname@example.org or Cindi Gelman (310) 326-4414 email@example.com
