Off to New York!

I'm going to New York tomorrow with the school band (band geeks ftw!) until Monday. I'm so excited right now that it's all I can think about. We'll be doing most of the touristy stuff, such as:

  • Visiting the Empire State building

  • Getting a tour of Radio City Music Hall

  • Going to Time Square

  • Watching a musical on Broadway

  • Seeing the Statue of Liberty

  • Lots of shopping

Other not-so-touristy things include:
  • Competing in the "Festivals of Music" competition at Montclair State University in NJ and awards ceremony at Planet Hollywood.

  • Listening to the New York Philharmonic Orchestra perform at the Lincoln Centre (yes, I am Canadian and will spell it with -re). They'll be playing Ravel's Concerto in G Major and Schubert's Symphony No 9 "Great".

So for the next five days I'll look like the typical nerdy tourist with my gigantic camera and backpack. But it'll be fun so I don't really care. :P Now I've gotta go and finish packing!

    Only 11.5 hours to go (assuming that Anders will arrive at 7:44)!

    You're a band geek who'll look like a nerdy tourist! You'll need to be super cool afterward to maintain your image ;)

    Ooh, have fun and good luck at the competition! I actually just got back from an orchestra trip to NYC a while ago! What musical are you guys seeing on Broadway?

    Oohh...I'm so jealous! I've always wanted to go to New York!

Something to say?
