Each year, The Marriotts Ridge Music Department takes an annual Spring Trip. We highly encourage our students to take advantage of this opportunity. There is so much to be gained by participation on the trip. It allows our students to participate in high-level competition with students from all across the country. Each year promises to be new and exciting. Although we may re-visit destinations every four years, each time we plan new activities and compete against different schools. Our students are able to bond and grow as a music community through the experience. We have found that these bonds last far beyond high school. The expectation is for students in the premier ensembles, Symphonic Wind Ensemble and Big Band Jazz, to go on the trips.
