For 30 years now, the Disneyland Band has traveled to various venues throughout Orange County to educate more than 1.5 million second-graders about the history of the American Band. In fact, I remember attending the Disneyland Resort Salutes the American Band concert series when I was in elementary school! (Who can forget a field trip to see Mickey Mouse?) To celebrate the milestone anniversary, a few of the people who make the experience possible explain the program and its importance in this video!

Disneyland Band Concerts Mark 30 Years of Educating Local Youth
by Kevin Rafferty, Jr., Communications, WDI
As more and more school music and arts programs get cut, I think it’s so wonderful that the Disneyland Band is doing its part to promote instrumental music to our children. Thank you to these wonderful ambassadors of music.
I remember seeing the live concert in Costa Mesa when I was in 2nd Grade. By far it was my favorit feild trip that year. Although the venue has change since I saw it, it is a wonderful trip and its was the first time I was ever introduced to all the different types of music!
