Congratulations to Jazz Band & Advanced Orchestra on two great performances at California Adventure! Everyone performed very well and many audience members came to me afterwards to compliment both groups. Many cast members were very complimentary of your behavior backstage on both days. Another major thank you to all of our boosters who helped with chaperoning, loading, driving, and all other things that needed to be done for these two days

there are some videos now posted on our YouTube channel
