Lakeside Jazz Festival Information

The Fivay High School Jazz Ensemble has been tentatively approved to attend and perform at the Lakeside Jazz Festival, which takes place in Port Orange, FL. Our trip has been approved thus far, and is currently pending approval from the Pasco County School Board (on February 15, 2011). That being said, we have been given permission to start accepting money to pay for our trip. The trip cost will be $100.00 per person (including chaperones). This cost is used to cover our hotel, transportation, festival entry fee, etc…. Please, make every effort to have this paid by April 1, 2011. You can pay it in full, in monthly payments, or through our upcoming fundraiser (which begins on February 22, 2011). As we get closer to our trip, there will be a trip meeting to go over the trip handbook and to answer any questions.
