Over the course of four days in early November, more than 150 Harborfields High School music students traveled to Disney World to perform and take part in educational workshops. The vocal ensemble, directed by Clare Jackson, and the chamber orchestra, under the baton of Greg Antonelli, gave separate performances for adoring crowds at Disney Springs. The marching band and kickline, under the leadership of Allison Scilla and Jackie Best, respectively, paraded through the Magic Kingdom. All four ensembles had the pleasure of working with Disney professionals in workshop settings that covered choreography and dance (for kickline) and rehearsing, sight reading and film scoring (for the vocal ensemble and a combined marching band/chamber ensemble).

“Student travel and life experiences beyond the classroom are an essential part of what we try to teach,” said Scilla, who coordinated the entire trip. “We’re so proud of how our students represented Harborfields and what they learned and accomplished during our whirlwind days in Disney.”
