Band and Choir: ‘California Dreamin’

By Rachelle Dennis Posted June 3, 2009

The Lowry high school band and choir classes took a trip to Anaheim, California for five days. The first two days they spent on the road, the next two days they had the opportunity to spend in Disneyland and California Adventures, and the final day they spent performing and laying around at the beach.

Sophomore Jacob Gibson, who is a member of both the band and Swing Choir, thought that the whole trip was great because of the variety of things to do.

In order to go on this fun-filled trip, students had to raise $350. This included the bus, the hotels, and of course the tickets to get into Disneyland.

Gibson stated, “The trip was a big success. We had a good time messing around at the parks and learning how we can perform better. I think I speak for everyone when I say that we had a great time and would like to do it again.”

Although it seems like this trip was all fun and games it wasn’t, the choir had to prep their voices and the band had to rehearse their parts for the competition that was held at a college campus near Disneyland.

The Men’s choir was able to prevail and win gold, the combined choir won silver and the band pulled through and got a bronze medal. The Lowry students were very proud of their winnings and hope to compete again next year. The students agree it was a great trip.
