Last Wednesday, December 2, 2015, members of the choral department took the long bus ride down to Orlando, FL to perform in the Epcot Candlelight Processional in Walt Disney World. They left at 3:00 in the morning and arrived in the Magic Kingdom around 5:00 that afternoon to enjoy the magic of the parks during this special time of year. On Thursday they explored the behind the scenes atmosphere of Hollywood Studios. On Friday, the members that were performing got to enjoy a few morning hours of the park before going backstage to rehearse. Whoopi Goldberg was the celebrity narrator for the evening and she came in to speak with the over 300 students performing. She encouraged the students to take care of themselves and just enjoy the performance! After the performance ended, the group got to enjoy the park and end their night with IllumiNATIONS, the amazing firework show in Epcot. The students were able to show their wild side as they ended their trip in the Animal Kingdom on Saturday. At around 3:00 in the afternoon, the group headed home back to Alabama. It was truly a magical experience and a trip that is sure to be remembered!
