Today marks the first day of performances for the 2015 Disneyland Resort All-American College Band. Under the direction of Dr. Ron McCurdy, the band will be appearing in both Disney California Adventure and Disneyland throughout the afternoon and into the evening. The band is comprised of 21 young musicians from colleges and universities from around the United States. Dating back to 1971, the Disneyland Resort All-American College Band has had thousands of students participate and then go on to other jobs in the music industry. If you have a sharp eye, you might even recognize a few of the musicians from around the Disneyland Resort as alumni of the band.
This year, the performances begin and end a bit later than other years in the past. Here is a look at their set times:
- 3:00 pm – Hollywood Backlots Stage in Hollywood Land, Disney California Adventure
- 5:15 pm – Flag Retreat in Town Square, Disneyland
- 6:15 pm – Sleeping Beauty Castle, Disneyland
- 7:15 pm – Town Square, Disneyland
- 8:15 pm – Parade Route, Disneyland
The band typically performs for 8 weeks throughout the summer. This summer is particularly special as the Disneyland All-American College Band is celebrating its 45th anniversary.
