Middle school students from Brevard Academy Travel Band have been invited by Disney World to perform on stage. They are looking to raise $8,500 via Kickstarter to make this happen.
Brevard, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2015 -- Brevard Academy's Travel Band will be traveling to Orlando's Walt Disney World Resort for a very special performance scheduled for the end of this academic year. They are currently looking for funding assistance to perform on this big stage. Derrick Gardner, the Music Director of the Travel Band, wants to organize similar trips every spring to provide the kids a platform to compete against schools from different other parts of the state. In the last year, they successfully performed in Chattanooga, Tennessee and Pigeon Forge at the DollyWood theme park. This year, their destination is Walt Disney World, one of the finest platforms of performing art in the country.
Brevard Academy Travel Band consists of more than thirty 5th to 8th grade students. This group of multi-talented kids is dedicated to bringing pride and glory to the school through academic and musical excellence. It is certainly a matter of great honor for them to take part in the in the Disney Performing Arts before an international audience. During their stay in Florida, they will attend workshops and concerts, and visit the Disney Theme Parks, in addition to performing at a Disney-selected location.
There will also be an opportunity for the Travel Band to participate in a Performing Arts Workshop that will provide them exposure to a recording studio as aspiring performance artists. A selected Disney piece performance by the band will be accompanied by a classic Disney animated film's footage.
The probable expenses for this upcoming trip have been calculated to be much higher compared to the band's earlier trips. Vigorous fundraising efforts are on to make this trip affordable for the students. Their Kickstarter funding goal is $8,500, and this campaign will end on March 4, 2015.
