WHAT IS THE DISNEY PERFORMING ARTS FESTIVAL?
The Disney Performing Arts Festival is an invitational festival that provides a professional setting for top performing ensembles from across North America, Europe and Asia. The Festival is a showcase of outstanding ensembles who then receive world class workshops with Disney professionals who work in the Performing Arts Industry. This invitation only festival accepts ensembles that reflect this professionalism in every aspect of their performance!
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE DISNEY PERFORMING ARTS FESTIVAL?
Performances – Campbell Jazz 1, Vocal Jazz 1, Gr. 11/12 Band, Sr. Voices, Wind Ensemble, Chamber Choir
All of Campbell’s senior performing ensembles were accorded invitations to perform and will do so on stage in Disneyland at separate times. This opportunity was granted through a stringent audition process begun in the 2016-2017 school year.
Soundtrack Session - Band and Jazz Band
Students will step into a Disney recording studio and take part in a film recording session.
By sight-reading music and using a click track, groups bring life to the score for Disney animated segments.
The workshop concludes with a viewing of the student-recording tracks combined with each animated segment.
Soundtrack Session - Choir
A Disney musical director treats the students like professional studio musicians hired to overdub a Disney Production. Using a click track and sight-reading skills, students bring to life a score for a Disneyland Resort Show, or Disney animated segment.
Tune-In Seminar - Building a Better Musician- All Musicians!
Students learn the integral role that music plays at the Disneyland Resort, in Disney film and in our world.
Interactive exercises and Disney film moments are used to test students’ knowledge of the basic building blocks of music.
Students will be challenged to learn “listening tips” including origins of their favorite music. They’ll discover practical ways to improve future performances.
3 day Park-Hopper Pass
When students are not performing or in studio sessions, they will have the opportunity to explore the rides and attractions of the Magic Kingdom and California Adventure.
We are planning to travel by air to Los Angeles on WestJet Airlines. While in California we will be using a local coach bus company.
ALL air traveler’s to the USA must have a valid passport. The best way to acquire a passport is to fill out the on-line application or pick one up from a Canada Post Outlet or the Regina Passport Office. As we are planning to pre-clear all participants through US Customs as a group, we will need to collect photocopies of each participant’s passport no later than October 16, 2017.
Please do not mail the passport application! After completing the application and following all of the directions, take the application in person to the local passport office! Allow at least two weeks for processing!
The Regina passport office is located at: Suite 500,1870 Albert Street.

We will be staying at the Candy Cane Inn in Anaheim, which is within walking distance to the Main Gate of Disneyland.
All breakfasts are provided by the hotel. Students will be responsible for all other meals with the exception of two suppers which are included in the tour fee.
In order to provide this opportunity and keep costs down for individual students, it is important that every member of the Campbell Music Family support the CAMPA group and individual fundraisers in some way. Please check for fundraising events posted on the CAMPA website: campa.ca.
Working at CAMPA bingos is a great individual fundraiser that benefits every Campbell Music family directly. Please contact the CAMPA Bingo Coordinator, Maureen Pennington, at email@example.com if you are interested in earning money at upcoming bingos! Each person earns $50 toward their TRP fundraising account. Therefore, if you have 4 people working one bingo for you, you can earn $200 toward your fundraising account in one bingo evening! If you currently have funds in your family’s TRP account, you will have received a statement during September 2017. All bingos are held at Centennial Bingo (2311 2nd Avenue) and the upcoming bingo dates are listed below. Additional dates will become available throughout the year.
