The orchestra is going to Omaha, Neb. on Sept. 22 and 23.

It is $125 per student to go, but students who have worked for a firework stand this past summer have had the opportunity to pay less, depending on how long they worked.

“Right now it looks like we have at least 45 students going, and we may have a few more,” Orchestra instructor Joan Crull said. “There will probably be four chaperones.”

The orchestra usually goes on two overnight trips a year, one in September and another for Western Kansas Orchestra Festival (WKOF). This year, WKOF will be hosted in Hays, so the orchestra will only have the overnight trip to Omaha.

Crull said every year, she tries to take the orchestra to different symphonies in different states. The orchestra has been to Colorado multiple times, along with Oklahoma.

The first day of the trip will consist of a four hour drive and some sightseeing. The day will end with the group going to the Omaha symphony where they will be playing Beethoven.

On the second day of the trip, the orchestra will be going to the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. The zoo has the largest indoor desert, North America’s largest indoor tropical rainforest and 28 acres of wild animal grassland. Afterwards, the group plans on going to a mall for an hour or two to shop.

The money to be able to go is due Saturday, Sept. 8.

“I’m excited to hear the symphony and to have everybody get dressed up,” Crull said, “I’m also really excited about the zoo. It sounds like a really great zoo.”
