In February, 121 students from the band, choir and theater programs at St. Francis High School in Wheaton traveled to Orlando, Fla., to attend the Disney Performing Arts Workshop hosted and run by Disney professionals.

The students, accompanied by 10 faculty chaperones, worked with musicians and actors in their respective fields during hands-on, creative sessions. Highlighting their experiences were the opportunities for the St. Francis Music Ensemble and the St. Francis Choir to perform on the Waterside Stage in Downtown Disney, and for the St. Francis Marching Band to march down Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom.
