Helsingor Pigegarde Marching Band-Denmark
Hosting Information

The Arcadia Music Club would like to ask your family to consider hosting students from Denmark during their time in California for the Rose Parade. This is an amazing opportunity to spend time with students from Europe. It is also a great opportunity to support the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade- a parade with which we have a long history.

The Helsingor Pigegarde Marching Band consists of about 60 female high school age students. The students have a busy itinerary that includes the Rose Parade, Band Fest, Disneyland, Santa Monica Pier, and several other events. Your family would provide lodging and some food.

Responsibilities of host families:
Provide sleeping accommodations for 2 female students
Provide breakfast for the students
Transport students to Arcadia High School each day. The students will then ride their charter bus to events.
Pick up students at Arcadia high School at the end of the day.

There are two segments of the trip. Families are asked to sign up for one segment. Of course, a family is allowed to sign up for both segments of the trip if desired.

Segment 1: The evenings of December 26 - December 30
Segment 2: The evenings of January 1 - January 5

*Education OUTSIDE of the Box for our AUSD families who participate: A new perspective of our world, learning a new language (Danish, although the students most likely speak a bit of English), an encounter with another culture, NEW FRIENDS!

Please contact Kevin Sherrill at for more information and to sign up to host.
