Posted in Preston Education

This past week, June 16-22, the Fillmore Central Band and Choir traveled to Orlando, Fla., to perform at the Walt Disney World Resort. The marching band performed at the Magic Kindgom during the afternoon of Wednesday, June 18, for an enormous crowd of fans! The choir performed the following day at the beautiful waterfront stage in Downtown Disney.

The entire Fillmore Central entourage consisted of 100 students and 14 chaperones. Directors include Mr. Lane M. Powell, Director of Bands, Mrs. Jessica M. Powell, Color Guard Instructor and Lesson Instructor, and Mrs. Sarah Holten, Vocal Director.

Both groups were awarded trophies for their performances through the Disney Performing Arts Program.

The group also enjoyed Typhoon Lagoon, DisneyQuest, Animal Kingdom, Epcot Center, Hollywood Studios, Universal Studios, and The Islands of Adventure parks during their seven day trip. Accommodations were at the luxurious Rosen Plaza Hotel next to the Orlando Convention Center. Transportation was provided by Hawkeye Stages, Decorah, Iowa. The entire trip was overseen by Summit Tour and Travel, Orlando.

Thanks to Fillmore Central Schools and everyone who helped to make this once in a lifetime trip a reality for so many of our young people!
