SYLVANIA, Ala. (WHNT) – The Sylvania High School marching band is getting ready for a big trip later this week.  They’re preparing to play at Disney!

The band will perform in a parade at EPCOT on Saturday, February 16.  Band Director Cindy Stephens says the band submitted a video application to Disney, who chose the band to play at one of the parks.

“Disney is pretty selective,” Stephens said.

At EPCOT, the band will have the opportunity to do a five-minute stand-still feature.  The band will play ‘Paperback Writer’ and ‘Get Back’ by The Beatles.

The 30 band members plan to leave on Thursday.  This coming weekend includes the President’s Day Holiday on Monday, so Stephens is optimistic EPCOT will have a big crowd to see the students play.
