Brainerd Baptist School Chorus Performs At The Walt Disney World Resort

Thursday, December 4, 2014
Brainerd Baptist School Chorus members became stars of their own Disney show on Dec. 4 when they entertained resort guests at the Waterside Stage in Downtown Disney. The group traveled from Chattanooga to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida to take part in the Disney Performing Arts program.

The students, under the direction of Jane Ellis and Sean Cocoran, entertained a large crowd of Downtown Disney guests with several holiday vocal numbers.  This was the group’s first visit to the resort with the Disney Performing Arts program.

Dance, vocal and instrumental ensembles from all around the world apply to perform each year as a part of Disney Performing Arts at both the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
Once selected, they are given the opportunity to perform at the resort for an international audience of theme park guests. Millions of performers have graced the stages of the Disney Parks in the more than 25-year history of the program.
