School Days 4.29.15

 

By Herald Staff

Margaret Mace
Mrs. Clarke and Mrs. Golden’s Kindergarten classes at Margaret Mace School presented the play “When I Grow Up.” The students worked very hard practicing their lines, songs, and dance moves. Students, faculty, family, and friends were invited to attend the show. The moral of the play was to reinforce that whatever you grow up to be, a sailor, plumber, railroad engineer, a cowboy, a baker, or even a movie star. You just have to give it your very best. It’s a land of opportunity in a world of possibility.
Ocean City
Members of Ocean City High School Concert Choir and “Red Raider” Marching Band became stars of their own Disney show on April 22 and April 24 when they entertained resort guests at Melody Gardens at Epcot and the Magic Kingdom. The group traveled 1,000 miles from Ocean City, N.J. to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida to take part in the Disney Performing Arts Program.
The choral group, under the direction of Ricardo Valle, put on a fantastic show that entertained guests. The marching band, under the direction of Donna Schwartz, entertained hundreds of Magic Kingdom Park guests as they marched through Main Street, U.S.A. around Cinderella Castle and into Frontierland.
This was the group’s fifth visit to the resort with the Disney Performing Arts Program.
In addition to their performance, the concert choir participated in the Disney Performing Arts “Disney Sings” workshop, where they experienced the exhilaration of being a professional performer as they prepared music for a simulated Disney show under the tutelage of a seasoned Disney vocalist.
The marching band also participated in the Disney Performing Arts “You’re Instrumental” workshop, where they learned how to get the most of their rehearsals and honed their sight-reading skills under the guidance of an experienced Disney Teaching Artist.
Vocal, instrumental and dance ensembles from all around the world apply to perform each year as a part of Disney Performing Arts at both the Disneyland Resort and the Walt Disney World Resort. Once selected, they are given the opportunity to perform at the resort for an international audience of theme park guests. Millions of performers have graced the stages of the Disney Parks in the more than 25-year history of the program.
