Help Davie Band go to Washington DC

The Davie County High School Wind Ensemble has been selected to travel to Washington, D.C. to participate in The 2016 President’s Cup National Concert Band Festival hosted by the United States Army Band from March 31 - April 3, 2016.  The President’s Cup is a performance festival, in which only eight of the nations top bands are selected each year to participate.  Our band is scheduled to perform at the Lincoln Memorial as well as the prestigious Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas for a crowd of over 1,000 people.  The band will have the privilege of receiving instruction from Col. Timothy Holtan, conductor of the U.S. Army Band, and the principal players of the Army Band.  Several Davie High students will also have the once in a lifetime opportunity to perform on stage with the “Pershing’s Own” U.S. Army Band.  The band with the highest overall score will be presented the President’s Cup. 

The Davie High School Wind Ensemble is a band made up of 59 wind and percussion players.  We are asking for your help to help to send our students to Washington.  The total cost of the trip is approximately $35,000. This includes the cost of each student's hotel accommodations and travel expenses.  Without help from someone like you, many students in the band will not be able to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity.

We only have until the last week of February to raise the money needed to go.  We sincerely ask that you consider sponsoring the Davie County High School Wind Ensemble as we represent Davie County and North Carolina in the 2016 President’s Cup Concert Band Festival.  Any donations are greatly appreciated.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your donation.
