Purdue Bands & Orchestras Alumni-Only Hawaii Trip – Registration Coming Soon
The Purdue Bands & Orchestras Alumni-only Hawaii trip is now scheduled for June 2020. The Hawaii trip is open to all of our Purdue Bands & Orchestras alumni and will include opportunities for sightseeing, additional optional excursions, and unique performance experiences. The trip will take place from June 6 – 14, 2020. Music Travel Consultants, an organization that has planned many national and international trips for all of our ensembles, will be organizing the Hawaii Trip. Registration through Music Travel will go live in January 2019 for the June 2020 event. More information, including the itinerary, will be released by the time registration goes live in January. This longer registration period will allow alumni nearly 18 months to plan and prepare for this exciting trip.
