METUCHEN — The Metuchen High School music department brought 144 students to Florida’s Disney World last weekend, from March 15-18. Students performed for park visitors as well as attending workshops during their time there.
The Marching Band paraded down Main Street in the Magic Kingdom on Saturday morning, playing to cheering onlookers. The Chorus and Orchestra both performed at the Innovations outdoor stage at Epcot on Sunday to standing room only audiences.
Band and Orchestra members attended the “You’re Instrumental” workshop, a seminar led by a Disney conductor. Students rehearsed and recorded a soundtrack for a Disney animation.
Concert Choir members attended the “Disney Sings” workshop where they rehearsed and recorded an excerpt from a Disney animated soundtrack. They also learned audition skills and vocal techniques with guidance from a Disney vocalist.
Color Guard members attended the “Auxiliration” workshop. They rehearsed and performed a simulated Disney special event production, with an instructor who emphasized what it takes to be a member of a dedicated and focused unit.
Each workshop is accredited by the Music Educator’s National Conference.
