Community college orchestras?

I have a story that I'm contemplating rewriting. One of the main problems with the first version is the age of main characters; the action starts while they're all in high school. For the rewrite, I'd like to move them at least to the first or second year of college, probably (for other reasons) their local community college. There are six core characters, and a not-yet-settled number of peripherals.

However, I also need to get them out of town en masse. In the last version, this was accomplished with a marching band competition, and I'd like to keep the musical angle if possible.

Would a community college have or sponsor its own band or orchestra? If not, are there such things as non-professional community orchestras (or other semi-classical musical ensemble)? Something these guys could join to pad resumes, keep them out of trouble, or just keep their hands in?

If there are, is there any reason the whole troupe, or a significant part of it, might go out of town for an overnight trip?
