Your actual price will be lower depending on our fundraising throughout the year. To qualify, all participants must return the completed application form along with a $100.00 nonrefundable deposit per trip member by November 29. This deposit is non-refundable as it is required by the festival company.
Mr. Snyder and the administration of Penncrest High School have the right to deny trip eligibility to any student who proves themselves unfit to represent our music department and our school, through their musicianship or conduct, beginning with the submission of this application up to and including the dates of the trip. Eligibility is also dependent on participation in mandatory activities, such as the trip meeting, any extra practices, and a signed Consent Form. Participation in the trip is a privilege, and has no bearing on a student’s grade.
