During the week of April 17-21, the Reading Memorial High School Marching Band and Color Guard traveled to Orlando, Florida to participate in a pair of memorable experiences at two Disney World Parks. On Tuesday April 18, the band went to Epcot and participated in a workshop with members of the Disney music department. While there they performed songs from the movie Tarzan as well as music from Star Wars. The band then had the opportunity to play the Tarzan music while the movie was shown.
That same afternoon at Epcot, the Color Guard participated in a workshop with members of the Disney performance and dance department. After warming up with one of the instructors, the girls went through a mock audition process to see what it would take to become a Disney performer. The group then learned a short routine with dance, flags and auxiliary sticks performed with various Disney songs.
On Thursday April 20, the band and color guard suited up and marched down Main Street at the Magic Kingdom, performing a medley of American tunes. It was an experience all who were there both watching and participating will remember forever.
