Sorry for the late notice but this month’s Booster Meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 2nd due to the schedule change with Jazz classes.
7pm back in the teachers lounge. We hope to see you there.
Fun, fun, fun! No performances or clinics on our last day in Orlando. The day began with a huge breakfast at Planet Hollywood which included our own personal DJ and dancing by our students and faculty. We then spent the rest of the day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park. Students got to enjoy the thrills of the Rock’n Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and Star Tours, and were treated to a magical display of light & sound at Fantasmic. The highlight of the day, though, has to be RMHS Choir Director Ms. Walsh who was selected to perform for the American Idol Experience!! She was fantastic, singing Shania Twain’s I Feel Like a Woman in front of hundreds of people and a judging panel, just like on the television show. We left the park around 9:30 p.m. and, after a long bus ride, made it back to RMHS the next day at about 8:30. Thank you to all of the adult chaperones who helped make this a very successful trip. We hope the students enjoyed it!
PERFORMANCE DAY IS FINALLY HERE!!!!! Epcot was the destination of the day. The students got to explore the countries and the world and the technological advancements of society. In between exploring, we had three performances. First, the RMHS Choir performed at Epcot. After a short jaunt to Downtown Disney, the Bands & Orchestras performed at the Waterside Stage to a large enthusiastic crowd!! We then returned to Epcot for another of Disney’s fantastic light & fireworks shows. Check out the pics from the day:
A magical day was had by all Wednesday. All of the ensembles (band, orchestra, choir, & color guard) had personal workshops with Disney professionals for a portion of the day. We got to see how the Disney performance magic happens and create an awesome video that we will share with everyone. When we were not at our Disney Performance Workshop, we enjoyed the excitement and wonder of the Magic Kingdom. It was pretty crowded, but a good time was had by all riding Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Carousel of Progress, It’s a Small World, the Main Street Parade of Lights, etc. Check out some of the highlights:
Lots of fun and music happened today!!!! After a BIG breakfast at the Rosen Center, the band, orchestra & choir had wonderful performance clinics at the University of Central Florida. We then departed for a fun-filled time at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. After riding The Hulk, Spiderman, Harry Potter & the Forbidden . . .
