FHS Bands head to NYC for a field trip


The FHS band program recently went on a field trip to New York City (NYC), where they had the opportunity to explore the city and learn from a music professional. One hundred and sixteen FHS students, teachers and parents attended the Mar. 14 – Mar. 17 trip. 

The band program plans a field trip every other year. NYC was chosen because of an opportunity to partake in a workshop with the conductor of the well-known Broadway production, “Hamilton.” 

“The workshop was a super cool experience,” senior Nina Frost said. “It was informational for me because I haven’t played in a big ensemble in a long time.” 

Besides participating in the workshop, the FHS band had an eventful time in the big city. They had the opportunity to go on a boat tour, where famous sights such as the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge and the city skyline were visible. The band also went to the Rockefeller Center, the Radio City Music Hall, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and many more sites around the city.

“We did a lot in NYC, every day was jam packed from 8 a.m.- 10 p.m , senior Ian Mills said. “We went on so many tours in the city as well as a boat ride around the city.”   

Many unforgettable memories were made together as a program in New York City. 

“My favorite memory was definitely the boat tour around Manhattan,” Mills added. “It was so cool to see the city from the water.” 

While some students enjoyed the boat tour, for others, it was not their favorite attraction.

“My favorite memory from the trip,” Frost said, “has got to be going to the top of the Rockefeller Center and seeing the whole city of New York.”

According to, band trips are a great opportunity for band members to get to know each other better and build stronger relationships with their peers, which is one of the reasons why the FHS band feels it’s important to go on trips at least every other year. 

“I definitely think it was a good bonding experience because everyone was around everyone all the time, ” Frost said. “We had small groups which also enhanced the connections that were strengthened on this trip.” 

Many great memories were made by the band members in New York City. Catch the FHS bands in action at their Spring concert on April 23.
