This spring, The Music Learning Foundation heads to the   beautiful mountain resort of Crested Butte, Colorado for an outstanding Concert Tour and Ski Trip!  The Spring Tour & Ski Trip is a great way for band members and their families to experience the thrill of traveling with the band and performing for new audiences.  The tour will feature the Beginner Band, Concert Band, Studio Honor Band, and the Jazz Honor Band. 

This will be Music Learning’s 33rd Spring Tour, and our 9th ski trip!  This event is fun for all students and their parents.  

Fun for Everyone! Many families make the spring tour a family event! Traveling “on the road” with a band offers students the opportunity to build lasting memories with their friends as well as experience the thrills and work involved in performing for large audiences.  In addition to the social and musical benefits of the tour, we also sneak in some fun along the way.  On our way to Crested Butte, we see first hand the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains.

  Did we mention that we’d also be skiing? Of course the main reason for the Spring Tour is to perform, but the students and their parents attend the Spring Tour for another reason too – IT’S FUN!  In addition to concerts, participants will have time to make new friends and show off their musical skills to audiences in Colorado!  After a busy concert tour, it is always fun to relax.  We do that by spending up to 4 full days skiing in Crested Butte, CO! Don’t miss this year’s Spring Concert Tour & Ski Trip!

For the Music Learning Foundation 2019  Spring Tour & Ski Trip, all parents and students will travel by group airfare or chartered motor coach from a central location in Dallas & Ft. Worth, to Crested Butte, CO and back. If you choose the flight option, you will fly direct from DFW - Gunnison, CO and then take a short 35 minute shuttle ride to the lodge. If you are traveling by motor coach, you will also enjoy comfortable seating, a bathroom, a DVD player, Wi-Fi, and more.  Our itinerary also features short stops to and from Crested Butte, so you’ll want to be with us on the tour to take advantage of all the concert performances and attractions that make up the Spring Tour & Ski Trip.  

When we arrive in Crested Butte, CO, we will stay in a ski lodge in the resort on the mountain.  Occupancy and package price is based on  “max occupancy” of 4 to 6 people per room.  If you are interested in a private room, that option may be available on a limited basis for an additional fee.  The rooms at our hotel are comfortable for this occupancy.  While in Crested Butte, breakfast and dinner are included in the price for the Spring Tour. Please help us plan our best trip ever by following one of the registration schedules in this flyer. 

Everyone performs on the Spring Tour & Ski Trip.  First year beginner band members, 2nd and 3rd year Concert Band members, and the Honor Bands will all perform throughout the band tour.

An important part of our annual Spring Tour is concert performance.  In addition to our big concerts, members of the Jazz and Studio Band will also perform as small jazz ensembles at different times throughout the Spring Tour.

Let’s Hit the Slopes! There will be plenty of time to go skiing in Crested Butte. This year’s trip includes ski rentals and lift tickets for 3 full days of skiing with the option to ski a 4th day too while we are in Crested Butte.  Our hotel is ski-in / ski-out!

Don’t know how to ski yet?     No problem!  You can easily add a half or full day ski lesson to your trip. Then you’ll be all set to ski the rest of the trip!
