Region Orchestra Info

Congratulations on your child’s acceptance into the Lowcountry Region Orchestra. SOA Orchestra students represent a large portion of the Lowcountry Region Orchestras!!! This is a sponsored event by SCMEA, and an approved field trip by CCSD, therefore, the rules of both organizations will be followed. If you choose to take your child separately, we ask that you stay at a different location so that there is no confusion with field trip guidelines or authority.

1. If you have questions about the field trip, or if you have a child taking medications on the field trip, please attend the Field Trip Meeting October 30th from 5:30-6pm in the HS strings room.

2. Turn your payment of $130.00 to SOAHSO by October 30. Includes: Charter Bus to and around Myrtle Beach, 1 night hotel stay, dinner on Friday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Students should bring approximately $30.00 cash for snacks, and lunch on Friday.
