National Festival of the States Concert Series, 2022 - Nashville, TN

Saint Mary's Chorale has been invited to Nashville, TN, to participate in the National Festival of the States Concert Series, with the culminating performance held at the GRAND OLE OPRY where we will walk in the footsteps of country music's superstars and get an exclusive look at what happens behind the scenes of the show that made country music famous!

The trip will take place March 9-14, 2022, culminating with the Chorale’s concert performance at the Grand Ole Opry on March 12.

Registration with a deposit of $500 is due by October 1, 2021, to secure a spot for this adventure. (Girls need not be enrolled in Chorale to be part of the Nashville tour.)

Final cost, additional payment information, and deadlines will be finalized once the group number and means of travel have been confirmed. Payment of the final balance will be due by Monday, February 14, 2022. Costs of the trip are the responsibility of each girl and her family.

Families are also welcomed to join us for the Chorale’s performance in front of the Grand Ole Opry on March 12. We ask families to respect the need for the girls to fully participate in all aspects of Saint Mary’s-sponsored activities while in Nashville, and we know in advance that there will be very little time to spend outside of activities. All students must travel to and from Nashville with Saint Mary’s School.

Participation in the Country Music experience will cost approximately $1,300 per student and covers:

  • One night in Asheville at a Hilton Garden Inn on the way to Nashville
  • Three-night stay at the Inn at Opryland
  • Stops at the Parthenon replica and Centennial Park
  • Tickets and tours at the Ryman Auditorium, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and the National Museum of African American Music
  • Tour guides to shepherd us throughout Nashville
  • Ticket to the Grand Ole Opry
  • Three (3) group meals
  • Chartered Bus

Students will be responsible for one small meal a day plus snacks and souvenirs.
