Emory & Henry’s Marching Band Makes History with Largest International Trip to France

by Billy Chandler

The Emory & Henry study abroad experience is among 100 different programs across 45 countries offered to students. The life-changing experience was made possible by generous donors of the College who helped make the trip more affordable. Students spent the first semester preparing for their trip by learning about the French culture to adequately prepare for their visit.

Members of the Emory & Henry Marching Band and Color Guard made history with a week-long study abroad trip to France from November 29 to December 6, 2023. They traveled with 89 students, staff, friends and alumni; this officially makes this the largest study abroad trip the college has ever taken.

The Emory & Henry study abroad experience is among 100 different programs across 45 countries offered to students. The life-changing experience was made possible by generous donors of the College who helped make the trip more affordable. Students spent the first semester preparing for their trip by learning about the French culture to adequately prepare for their visit.

Before their departure, the E&H Symphonic Band honored Veterans Day on November 12, 2023, with their “Salute to the Heroes” concert performance in the McGlothlin Center for the Arts. The performance was led by Professor Keith Cottrill and Dr. Matthew Frederick, who prepared the band to pack their performance for the trip.

The group kicked off the trip in Normandy, where they conducted a “Salute to the Heroes” performance during a wreath-laying ceremony at the American Cemetery to honor the American service members whose lives were tragically lost during World War II. Following a tour of Normandy’s beaches, bunkers, and museum, the band departed for Caen.

Once they arrived, the band performed holiday tunes throughout the Christmas Market, followed by a traditional French dinner. In the morning, they were bussed to Rouen, where they enjoyed free time exploring the city and eating lunch.

The following day, the group went on a guided tour of Paris before performing in Paris down the Champs de Elysee to the Arc de Triomphe. Emory & Henry’s Marching Band was the only band to play on that marching route. Next, the group made their way to the Jardin d’Acclimatation, a historic amusement park and iconic symbol of Paris dating back to 1860. Hospitable crowds gathered as they captured photos of the band and danced along to the music.

Students learned more than sheet music or essays, but rather by experiencing the history and emotions abroad. “My time in France was life-changing because it opened my eyes to the world outside my own. Some days, the trip feels like a dream, but the impact it left on me reminds me that it wasn’t,” said Miranda Howard, ’24 Drum Major, M.Ed. Instrumental Music Education PK-12.

The trip is held every four years and follows a successful experience in Rome, Italy, in 2020. Their visit to France brought continued spotlight and international recognition for the Emory & Henry Marching Band and Music Department.
