Whitewater band performs at Disney park


The Whitewater High School Wildcat Marching Band became stars of their own Disney show March 21 when they entertained guests in Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World Resort. They traveled more than 400 miles from to take part in the Disney Performing Arts Program.

The student performers, under the direction of Jack Jean and Rob Truan, greeted the guests of the park as they marched down Main Street, U.S.A. taking them past Cinderella Castle. The students helped get the crowd excited before the “Main Street Electrical Parade.”

By being part of a special show production, the students got an inside look at what it is like to be a professional in the entertainment industry.

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

Vocal, instrumental and dance ensembles from 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.
