IMG_0732On Monday, March 23, the Westminster Academy Choir and Jazz Band were given the chance to perform in the most magical place on Earth—Disney World. The night they arrived, they went to Medieval Times for dinner and a show. Later, the choir students had a practice and the jazz band went to the hotels to prepare for their early morning performance at Epcot. The choir went to Magic Kingdom first, performed at Epcot, and then went back to Magic Kingdom. Alexis Quintana, Jr. spoke on behalf of her fellow students saying, “I liked performing at Disney World because I got to go to Disney World.” Students arrived home on Tuesday night and were all back to their normal school routines on Wednesday. Way to go Choir and Jazz Band Lions!
