Clavius Gymnasium students are spending the week with members of the Blue Jay Band and their families this week as part of a biannual exchange program. The program, in its 15th year, is a musical and cultural exchange between the two schools.
This summer, 50 members of the band, along with 72 of their family members, visited Milan, Florence and Venice Italy before travelling to Bamberg, Germany where they stayed for 10 days. The group spent six days in Northern Italy in the cities of Milan, Florence and Venice and then 10 Days in Bamberg, Germany making day trips to Rothenburg, Erfurt, and Mödlareuth.
The Blue Jay Band is moderated by Mr. Joe Caluda ’79. To learn more about the various Jesuit bands, visit the Blue Jay Band page.
