FC: Orchestra Tour | Orchestra Tour
1: Zions National Park | My first orchestra tour and probably the funnest. We went to the Scarlet Pimpernel play, Zions and then we even got to play with the orchestra at Dixie. | Cove Fort
2: ST GEORGE | Utah
3: Getting ready to leave to Washington! It was so early in the morning and we had an extremely long day ahead of us!!! Waiting in line at the airport was crazy! They wouldn't let us carry on our instruments at all and they ended up breaking my violin so I had to use a crappy one for the concert! Washington DC is one of the most incredible cities! There is so much to do and see! It was so fun I wish we could have spent more time there!
4: War Memorials | War Memorials | SACRIFICE
5: This was our bus driver and the car he crashed into when he tried to do a lane change on the freeway. We were even interviewed by the police. It took FOREVER. Best part was the driver said it wasn't his fault when he was the one that did a lane change right over the car that was next to him...yeah not his fault at all. | Washington DC
6: Arlington National Cemetery Memorial Amphitheater, The Tomb of the Unknowns, Space Shuttle Challenger Memorial, and the Arlington House are just some of the memorials there that we were able to see. Such a wonderful experience.
8: Philadelphia | Pennsylvania | Ben Franklin's 300th Birthday
9: Performance Day | Riding on the subway everywhere was so cool! A huge group like that needing to get onto one train and stick together was a pretty crazy but we did it just fine! No one got lost which was good!
10: The Dance | First glimpse of New York | We weren't actually able to go to New York we only stayed on the New Jersey side then we took a ferry around on the Hudson River to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
