SA Band Makes Magic at Disney

January 21, 2020
By Noa Katherine Hardin

This past weekend (1/17-1/20) our Starkville Academy Band participated in many activities at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. The SA band participated in the "Jazz It Up" workshop, where they learned how to play Disney tunes in several different styles of music including swing, Latin, and blues. The Color Guard & Winter Guard members attended the "Auxiliration" workshop where they learned a routine involving dance and various props. Our students also participated in the "Disney Festival of Fantasy" parade and were given the opportunity to march and perform in front of hundreds (maybe thousands--it was packed!) of people from all over the world (Disney was having the Epcot International Festival).
