In April of 2009, the Moanalua Middle School Orchestra traveled to California to participate in the Disney's Magic Music Days program. The orchestra auditioned for, and was accepted into the program. The students were able to perform in Disneyland and then go behind the scenes to a Disney music studio to see what it was like to be a professional musician. Students sight-read music scores to various Disney movies and worked with a Disney conductor. They then did several recordings in the studio and got to see the video clip and hear their recording and how it matched with what was happening in the scene. It was an amazing experience! The students then got to enjoy their time and Disneyland, California Adventures and Universal Studios.
