Disneyland & Disney's California Adventure Information - TBD


    The Advanced & Ensemble groups will submit video performances on ??? for Community Arts Showcase (2018-19) which is free for Southern California schools to perform at Disney. There are no details as to when we are supposed to hear our results. If we are not accepted, we will participate in Magic Music Days instead which is a film scoring workshop learning how they make music for movies. This would be a cost experience.

    String Ensemble - TBD from 8:30 AM-8:45 PM (CA Adv. Backlot Stage)
    Wind Ensemble - TBD from 8:30 AM-8:45 PM (CA Adv. Backlot Stage)
    Advanced Band - TBD from 8:30 AM-8:45 PM (CA Adv. Backlot Stage)
    Advanced Orchestra - TBD from 8:30 AM-8:45 PM (CA Adv. Backlot Stage)

    The tentative plan is for all groups will leave Newhart at 8:45 AM and return at 8:45 PM. Wear your current music T-shirt and blue jeans. Bring your concert outfits in a garment bag or homemade version with large trash bags. We will go over the details with the students during class approximately 2-3 weeks prior.


    If it's raining, we still go. Disney may or may not cancel our performance depending on the weather. Regardless, we will be going. We recommend jackets, ponchos or umbrellas. CLICK HERE for info regarding Magic Music Days. Since we are performing with all 7th & 8th grader groups, this will not be an option this year. Next are the requirements & information for groups that passed their audition. All groups that made it will have their info passed along here.

    Students in the Advanced & Ensemble Groups plus Choirs will need to wear their correct concert outfit for picture day, tape day, Winter Concert and for the actual performance (if we make it!). Following the performance the students will be expected to wear their Newhart T-shirts with jeans (or jean shorts/skirts) and tennis/gym shoes.
