Desert Meadows band members, along with bands from Paseo Pointe and Vista del Sur, traveled to California to perform in the Music in the Parks festival held at El Dorado High School in Placentia. Following their performance, the students celebrated at the Disneyland Park. Music in the Parks provides student groups with an assessment of music skills by an outside panel. Bands are also provided with feedback on improving their performance. The Laveen group was given a “Good” rating in the competition after only practicing together once before the competition.
