Over 40 students and staff have recently returned from a successful Concert Band and Drumline tour to Paris where they performed in venues across the city.

The first performance took place on the impressive Videopolis stage at Disneyland. The Concert Band and Drumline performed a 20 minute set as part of the Disney Performing Arts Programme. It was an exciting opportunity for the students who gave a fantastic performance and subsequently they have been invited to perform again at Disneyland in the future.

Other concerts included a performance at the Notre Dame bandstand as well as a performance at the bandstand in Parc Georges-Brassens. All the concerts were well received with many audience members commenting on the high standard of the performance.

“The whole trip was a brilliant experience. It was amazing to perform at Disneyland on such a grand stage—a fantastic way to end my four years at NTU.”

As well as the concerts, the Concert Band and Drumline enjoyed seeing the sights in Paris. Some of the highlights included a boat tour along the river Seine, visiting Notre Dame and Montmartre and of course, spending the day at Disneyland Paris!
