Farmingville, NY - May 16, 2016 - Sachem High School East students from Farmingville, New York entertained thousands of Walt Disney World Resort guests with their performance at Disney Springs on May 15.
The Sachem High School East String Ensemble stepped into the spotlight on Waterside Stage at Disney Springs, showcasing their talents to Disney guests from around the world.
During their four-day stay, the musicians also immersed themselves in movie magic by rehearsing and recording special Disney music selections in “You’re Instrumental!,” a Disney Performing Arts workshop.
The group of 33 students traveled more than a thousand miles from New York to Florida to participate in the popular program. This was the group’s fourth visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with Disney Performing Arts.
Vocal, instrumental and dance ensembles from all around the world apply to perform each year as part of Disney Performing Arts at both the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Once selected, they are given the opportunity to perform amongst an international audience of Disney theme park guests. Millions of performers have graced the stages of the Disney Parks in the more than 25-year history of the program.
