Chicago Trip: Varsity Singers and Jazz Band

Congratulations to the students of Varsity Singers and Jazz Band on an incredible trip to Chicago. We had a flawless, enjoyable, educational, and packed trip. The students represented the music program, Hiland High School, and our community so highly. Our tour director from Music Travel, hotel staff, Vandercook College of Music faculty, and many others throughout our trip in Chicago could not stop raving about and complimenting our students on their behavior, respect, energy, and much more. They made memories and had experiences that will last a lifetime!
