Students from Owosso High School recently packed their bags for a magical, fun-filled, and educational trip to Walt Disney World Resort where they entertained thousands of guests with their performances at Magic Kingdom and Epcot in March. The school bands, along with their directors, marched down iconic Main Street, U.S.A. past Cinderella Castle, playing songs and cadences that capture the spirit of Americana.

Owosso High School experienced a once-in-a-lifetime educational and mentoring program through Disney Performing Arts workshops. The musicians immersed themselves in movie magic by rehearsing and recording special Disney music selections in “You’re Instrumental,” a Disney Performing Arts workshop.

Owosso was selected from applicants across the nation who submitted audio tapes which were reviewed by world-class adjudicators who evaluated and selected schools for the opportunity to participate in a Disney Performing Arts program. Students are taken on stage and behind the scenes, where Disney theme parks become vibrant “classrooms” as they discovered new techniques and pursued their passions, all while making memories that last a lifetime.

Owosso traveled more than a thousand miles to Florida to participate in the popular Disney Performing Arts program. Vocal, instrumental, and dance ensembles from all around the world apply to perform each year as part of Disney Performing Arts program at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Millions of performers have graced the stages of Disney Parks since the Disney Performing Arts program was launched more than 25 years ago. (Courtesy Photo)
