This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for band and choir students from our small, rural Colorado town. Cedaredge is located at the foot of the Grand Mesa on the Western Slope of Colorado.
Our marching band is currently a 4-time consecutive Class 1A state champion and the Cedaredge High School music program, led by Melissa Gross, has grown from 17 students in 2011 to over 50 students in 2015.
The cost to send a student on this trip is $1,200. While our students are working hard to earn the money for this trip, we are seeking donations from music lovers around the world to help make this happen.
Our band, choir, and show choir will perform on the National Mall during this trip and also march in the Memorial Day Parade, which is also the 75th anniversary commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor. While in D.C. we will get to visit many of the National Monuments and sites dedicated to our Service Men and Women.
Please help us to make this trip a reality for our students!
