On February 17-19, 2023, members of TRYPO’s Wind Symphony and Symphonette ensembles traveled to Washington, D.C., to play a concert with the ISO @ Third Street Symphonic Band and Musicians from the United States Air Force Band. Read more to hear about everything the musicians got up to during the trip, including musical and sightseeing opportunities!
The musicians from TRYPO and the ISO @ Third Street Music started their day on Saturday by heading to the Bolling Air Force Base, where they enjoyed coaching sessions and clinics led by musicians from the United States Air Force Band. After lunch, everyone headed to the venue, Adas Israel, to prepare for the evening concert. The performance was a big success! After a music-filled day, the musicians returned to the hotel for a Pizza Party and some much-needed rest.
After all their hard work, the TRYPO kids enjoyed a day of sightseeing on Sunday before heading back home to Pittsburgh. The first stop was the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, followed by lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. The trip’s last stop was a visit to the Lincoln Memorial and National Mall. After plenty of pictures were taken, it was time to board the buses to start the journey back home, ending a jam-packed and successful weekend!
