Here is an overview of Festival Disney

Achieve performance excellence at a competitive music festival produced by Disney. When you own the Disney stage, you own the world. Join Festival Disney and give your talented instrumental or vocal ensemble the chance to compete with other groups from schools across the country. Disney Performing Arts is extremely proud to be endorsed by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). To date, Festival Disney has been adjudicated by more than 150 distinguished collegiate music educators, including these instrumental education specialists: Dr. Ken Dye from University of Notre Dame, Dr. Catherine Rand from University of Southern Mississippi, Prof. Joseph Hermann from Tennessee Tech University, Dr. Anthony Pursell from University of Central Missouri, Dr. Stephen Benham from Duquesne University and Prof. Keith Bearden from Texas Tech University.
