The Discovery Middle School 8th Grade Symphonic Band is heading to Orlando, Florida! We will be traveling over the mid-winter break 2014, leaving on February 15 and returning on February 20. We will be working with Disney music staff in the “You’re Instrumental” workshop, where students will be sight-reading music to play for a soundtrack, syncing our recording of our soundtrack to a Disney movie, and we will learn about 21st century recording techniques and sound engineering in the music industry. We will also be playing a concert in Downtown Disney at their concert shell for an international audience.
The 8th graders and I are excited for this up coming adventure, and our hope is that we can take a major trip with the 8th grade band each year. More details as we get closer, and GO BAND!
