Each year the Patrick Henry Symphonic Winds provides the option to members for travel to participate in one or more festivals. Below are the destinations of past trips, and possible future destinations. There are often additional expenses involved with going on such field trips. They are fun for all and provide an additional avenue for the personal growth and musical education of our students.
