We are excited to share with you that our marching band and orchestra have the opportunity to travel again during the 2023 – 2024 school year. Next year, our program will be traveling to Orlando, Florida, where both our marching band and orchestra will have performance opportunities! This experience is a result of the hard work many have put in to provide us with this unique opportunity. Each of your children continues to excel in rehearsals and bring pride to the community in our performances. Thank you for supporting them.
The reasons why we travel with our ensembles are:
To provide educational opportunities to our students through performances/ adjudications
To bring recognition to our school district and music program
To build a sense of community between the members of our groups
When planning this trip, there are many different aspects we must consider, including:
Performance Schedules & Availability
All members of our marching band and high school orchestra (grades 9-12) are invited to perform. The decision to take each group will be made independently based on the commitment forms that are returned. In order for each group to perform and learn as one, we need to field a representative group.
Come see our Easton Area School District (EASD) orchestra students in grades 6 – 12 perform alongside world-renowned cellist Greg Byers in a rock-inspired concert! It will be complete with memorable and well-known rock songs suitable for all ages, adults & students! You won’t want to miss this event! Take advantage of this opportunity to hear some classic rock tunes and enjoy a night of music with our EASD music program!
The Instrumental Music Association invites you to attend the annual instrumental music banquet! The evening will include a buffet dinner, dessert, dancing, and special awards presented by Mr. Christopher Ballentine.
High school students who are members of the instrumental music program including the band front are guests of the IMA and their dinner will be paid for by the IMA. Family members and guests are encouraged to attend for a nominal cost. There is no limit on the number of guests a student may bring to the banquet.

Time: Doors open at 2:00 p.m. with opening remarks at 2:45 p.m. Dinner to follow
