Country music greats join students from around the country to record a benefit holiday album.

March 9 - 12, 2019

A select number of school bands, choirs and orchestras will be invited to travel to "Music City" to record a holiday album in one of Nashville's oldest and most prestigious studios, RCA Studio B. Not only will students be standing in the very spot Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton recorded some of their biggest hits, but each school will be joined in studio by a music industry professional who will be featured on their track. 


100% of album sales will benefit a charity that is to be determined.

From new shared experiences with peers, challenging comfort zones, and opening minds to new perspectives, travel has long proven to promote  student growth. Now, what happens if we add an element of charity to that trip? As a leader in student travel, we've had the opportunity to see this exponential growth first-hand for over 25 years, and for thousands of students.  

Students realize - maybe for the first time - that they can have a significant impact on their community, and are a part of something bigger than themselves. They quickly learn to lead as they understand charities rely on people like them to spread their mission. Some students become personally connected to their trip and continue their charity well beyond their experience. These new skills, experiences, and sense of fulfillment developed when traveling and giving their time will benefit students for the rest of their lives.
