    I’m going to audition! I’m a saxophone performance major at USC getting my BM in classical performance with a minor in jazz studies. I’m very excited to be given this opportunity to play with incredible musicians with different musical and personal backgrounds.

    1. How exciting! Let us know how it goes! Maybe we’ll get to see you this summer! – Mr. DAPs

  2. My name is Colin Milch, I am 20 years old, and I am a music performance major from Rhode Island College. I have been playing the trumpet for about 13 years now and it has been my dream to be a trumpet performer at Disneyland. Last month I applied for an audition in New York City and since then I have been waiting for an email from the Disneyland All-American College Band Facebook page so I can make travel arrangements.

    1. Best wishes Colin! Let us know how your audition goes! Maybe we’ll see you in the parks this summer! – Mr. DAPs

    I absolutely hope to audition! I am a music education major at CSU, Fresno. I play tuba and certainly hope to perform someday in a group like this!. This is all the info so far though right? I would hate to be missing out on something like this just because I was looking in the wrong place.

    1. Hi Taylor, this is the most updated information that we are aware of. You can also find more on the official Disneyland College Band Facebook page! Best wishes on your auditions for this! Hopefully, we’ll see you in the parks! – Mr. DAPs

    1. That’s exciting Cameron! Let us know how it goes! – Mr. DAPs

    Hi there! Hope I’m not missing out on anything! I couldn’t really find anything on how to start the audition process if we haven’t done anything yet, or any materials that we would need to learn…or much else. Is there to be music posted soon, if any, or did I miss something? Not trying to sound rude, just curious! I’d hate to miss out on something as awesome as this!

    1. Hi Jay! We have posted more info about auditions here:

      There is also more on the Disneyland Resort All-American College Band official facebook page!

      Best wishes!

    Hey there, I have signed up for my audition in Santa Ana this Sunday, but I have still not received an allotted time for my audition. I don’t doubt that I may have messed up in typing in my email address for them to notify me, so is there anyone that I can contact to learn about my time?

  7. There is a good chance that I will audition!

    I have a couple questions though. 1) Are we paid to be in the band if we get picked? 2) Where would we live? 3) What is the timeline of events? When do we arrive and when do we leave? 4) Do we have access to information about what life would be like when apart of the band?
