Metuchen High Music Students Perform at Disney World this Weekend

If you asked a member of the Metuchen High School's music department where they're going this weekend, they would exclaim, "I'm going to Disney World!" They didn't win the Super Bowl or an Oscar but they are getting an opportunity to play on a stage that is coveted the world over by millions of musicians and performers.  "It's very exciting just representing our school, having huge crowds watch us,'' said Christine Magruder, a senior and drum major. Magruder is one of 97 students from the high school's music department who will perform in Walt Disney World in Orlando this weekend.
MHS band students are slated to perform at a daytime parade on Saturday in the Magic Kingdom, and students of the school's orchestra and chorus will perform at the Waterside stage in downtown Disney. This annual program is called Disney Magic Music Days and is open to bands, orchestras, choirs, dance troupes and other performers from schools and community groups who want the chance to sing and play on a Walt Disney World stage. They had to submit tapes of their musical efforts and sustain a long audition process to win this opportunity to sing and play for Mickey and thousands of his closest friends.
Their performances aren't the only caveats on this exciting trip. The students will be guided through two paid workshops on instrumental music and voice by top-notch Disney professionals right in the park.


Way to go! Have fun!
