Band Performs at Disney During Mardi Gras Holidays

The CHS Band performed at Disney World during the Mardi Gras holiday.  They gathered for a final rehearsal and king cake party the Sunday night before Mardi Gras. At midnight they said a prayer and began loading the two charter buses. The buses pulled out of the CHS senior lot at one in the morning. They arrived at the All-Star music resort at 3 p.m. on Monday. The kids took some time to relax, showered and changed clothes then headed to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the remainder of the day.

During the trip we were able to visit Epcot, the Magic Kingdom, and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was amazing especially the ride the Forbidden Journey.

On Wednesday morning a few of the Bruinettes were able to participate in a clinic held by professional Disney dancers. That same afternoon the band performed before a packed house in Downtown Disney. The kids did an amazing job.
