Orlando: The Nation’s Hot Spot For Student Music Trips

With seven major theme parks, more performing arts festivals than anywhere in North America, and many second-tier attractions that cater to public performances, Orlando has become the hot spot for student group music tours. Over the past few years, student music travel has grown exponentially faster than any other type of group travel to Orlando. Because Orlando attractions are so music friendly, middle school, junior high and high school bands, choruses, or orchestras have many options from which to choose. For example, OrlandoFest, the newest and most exciting performing arts festival in Central Florida, is designed for middle school, junior high and high school concert bands, parade bands, vocal and instrumental jazz ensembles, orchestras (both full and string only), concert choirs, chamber and specialty choirs, show choirs, percussion ensembles and auxiliary units. Music directors have the option to choose between competitive or non-competitive adjudication options before nationally renowned adjudicators in a state-of-the-art performing arts center. Fabulous Signature Workshops are offered and the fun-filled awards ceremony is held at Universal Studios Florida.

At the Walt Disney World Resort, music ensembles have unique opportunities to perform in many different locations within Disney’s theme parks or at Downtown Disney via Disney’s Performing Arts OnStage program. In addition, students can work with Disney entertainment professionals in Disney’s Performing Arts Workshops which are designed to strengthen performance skills in a 2 to 3 hour session. Festival Disney is the premier music festival that gives directors a choice of competitive or non-competitive adjudication options. Other programs, such as Disney Honors, a prestigious non-competitive invitational that caters to the foremost high school band and choral programs, is the preeminent music festival that is distinctly Disney.

At the Universal Orlando Resort, student music groups have the option to perform in Universal STARS. This program provides music ensembles the opportunity to perform at Universal’s CityWalk and caters to bands, choruses, orchestras and dance ensembles. SoundWaves at Sea World also offers fantastic performance opportunities for student music groups where your ensemble will have the opportunity to perform in front of thousands of spectators.

Lastly, student music travel to Orlando would not be complete without performing at a second-tier attraction including Wet n’Wild, Kennedy Space Center, Arabian Nights, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament and local malls among many others.
