Heads-up Mickey. The Marching Saints are coming your way!
The Limestone College Athletic Bands have announced that the Marching Saints will be performing at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom on Friday, Jan. 4, 2019.
Limestone’s marching band will take part in the 2:30 p.m. “Disney Festival of Fantasy” Pre-Parade. The Marching Saints will have the honor and distinction of leading off the daytime parade that will include Mickey Mouse and all his Disney friends.
“In order to be considered for this performance, an audition video was submitted of the 2017 Marching Saints,” explained Joseph Earp, Limestone’s Director of Athletic Bands. “Earlier this year, the Disney Performing Arts Program extended an official invitation for us to perform. We are excited about this opportunity for our students, and we’re ecstatic to promote Limestone, our Department of Music, and our Athletics Band program on such a big stage.”
The Marching Saints will soon be accepting donations to assist with the overall costs of the trip. More information on how to contribute will be announced soon.
“The students have been preparing the parade material this semester,” Earp said. “We are looking forward to being part of creating this lifelong memory for our students as they represent Limestone College at Disney World.”
