From Ada Wiggens of the BHS Devil's Advocate:
Over April vacation the Burlington High School band, accompanied by the dance squad and color guard, left to march in their biggest performance this year at Disney World.
The group of over 100 people began their triennial trip to Orlando with a 4 a.m. flight out on Monday. The entire band traveled together, and on Tuesday, the troupe gave their only performance of the trip on the streets of The Magic Kingdom. They played, “Elephant’s Parade,” and other select pieces the band had decided were their best performances from past years.
“It [the trip] has become a tradition,” said Mr. Lovell, the band director. “It’s a performance in front of a lot of people with a lot of kids in a very elite location. It is very safe, and you can let the kids run free in the park.”
