Disneyland Performing Arts Festival a Huge Success
Congratulations to Students and Parent-Chaperones that participated in the Disneyland Performing Arts Festival! Our trip to California was a huge success! The evening performance in California Adventure Park had its beautiful and exciting moments, and the workshop provided a unique experience for our student ‘recording-musicians’.
During the workshop, students sight-read movie scores before recording them just a few minutes later. The orchestra recorded the music to ‘Up’, ‘Tangled’, ‘Lion King’, and even recorded the themes to Disney Co. and Marvel’s opening credits. The students worked with Joe Alfuso, a composer whose works are performed throughout Disney parks, and has worked with Seattle Symphony and London Symphony. Later this spring, we will give a public viewing of the music we recorded. I’d also like to give a special thank you to our Parent-Chaperones for donating their time and money to helping our program during the trip. I also want to thank our BHS Orchestra Boosters for allocating the resources needed to provide financial aid and scholarships to students that needed it for our big trip.
