Disney Performing Arts Programs

  • Festival Disney is a positive, educationally meaningful festival experience geared at talented performers from Middle School thru High School. Concert bands, jazz ensembles, marching/parade bands, orchestras, choral ensembles, show choirs and auxiliary units are all invited to participate.
  • As one of the largest festivals in the nation, those who participate have a great opportunity to meet other students and see other ensembles perform.  Festival Disney has hosted groups from 45 states and international ensembles from Cayman Islands, The Dominican Republic, Scotland, Canada and Japan.
  • Special selected, national adjudicators provide detailed, positive feedback to all ensembles through written and recorded comments, as well as personalized feedback clinics following concert performances.  Directors can choose between competitive and non-competitive adjudication options. At the end of the festival weekend, participants enjoy an exciting and unique Disney awards ceremony at a Walt Disney World ® Theme Park. Festivals take place on select weekends throughout the spring.
