Since 1971, the Disneyland Resort All-American College Band has been bringing together top students from colleges and universities around the United States to form a band that performs throughout the summer. During this experience, the students take classes, work with guest clinicians, perform at the Disneyland Resort, and also experience other elements of working in the music industry. The 21-piece band performs for 11 weeks each summer at the Disneyland Resort. Their energetic performances are always a favorite of guests visiting the Resort.
Throughout the course of the summer, the Disneyland Resort All-American College Band work with many guest clinicians. In previous years this has included Gregg Field, Sal Lozano, Wayne Bergeron, Jiggs Whigham, John Clayton, Rick Baptist, and more. Along with working with clinicians, each student will pick a course of study for the summer. There are three that include: Careers in Music; Composition and Arranging; Recording and Production.
