While the rest of York studied at school, the orchestra started spring break early by driving down to Orlando, Florida early Friday morning.

After many hours on the bus, the orchestra takes a break in Tennessee.

The orchestra spent three days in Orlando, two at Disney World and one at Universal Studios. The first day was spent at Magic Kingdom and the second day was spent at Hollywood Studios.

Before entering Hollywood Studios, the orchestra stops to take a group picture.

On Sunday, March 25th, the Yorkestra seized the day during their 30-minute concert played at the Marketplace Stage in Disney Springs at 2:00 pm. The concert order was “Carpe Diem!”, followed by “How Does A Moment Last Forever” from the 2017 live action Beauty and the Beast and “The Spirit of Adventure” from the Pixar film Up. The concert ended with a medley from Pixar’s film Brave, titled “Music from Brave”.

Following the concert, the orchestra spent the rest of the day back at Hollywood Studios.

On the fourth day of the trip, the orchestra switched gears from Disney and headed out to Universal Studios.

While waiting in line in Hogwarts for the Harry Potter ride, junior Zach Zientara fell and cut his head. He was taken to a clinic and got five staples. After receiving medical care, Zientara went back to the park and enjoyed the rest of the day at the park with friends.
