The Little Cypress Mauriceville High School Marching Band members became stars of their own Disney show on March 11, when they entertained resort guests at the Magic Kingdom Park. The group traveled over 855 miles from Orange, to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida to take part in the Disney Performing Arts program.

Under the direction of Steve Schoppert, the Little Cypress Mauriceville High School Marching Band entertained Magic Kingdom guests with an action-packed show. The high school was one of the first to march before the new “Disney Festival of Fantasy” parade.

This was the marching band’s first visit to the resort with the Disney Performing Arts program.

In addition to their performance, the Little Cypress Mauriceville High School Marching Band participated in the Disney Performing Arts’ “Jazz It Up” Workshop.

The “Jazz It Up” Workshop allows students to experience the excitement of a recording studio environment as a Disney clinician conducts groups through a rehearsal and recording session of classic Disney selections played jazz-style.

Dance, vocal and instrumental ensembles from all around the world apply to perform each year as a part of Disney Performing Arts at both the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Once selected, they are given the opportunity to perform at the resort for an international audience of theme park guests. Millions of performers have graced the stages of the Disney Parks in the more than 25-year history of the program.
