GREENVILLE – The Greenville High School Wavaires are proud to announce their partnership with The Greenville High School Jazz Scene to perform at Disney World in Orlando, Florida in December.

The multi-day trip will be filled with workshops, performances at the Disney parks including a performance opportunity for the Show Choir in the Candlelight Processionals, as well as Lunch with Santa for underprivileged children in the Orlando area at Hard Rock Café.

“I am extremely excited for this upcoming trip to Disney World,” shared Mrs. Chelsea Whirledge, director of the Vocal Music Department at Greenville High School. “I am thrilled for the opportunity to partner with Mr. JR Price and the Jazz Scene, as they are a top-notch performing group! I believe combining the two groups for this trip will truly enhance their skills, and opportunities for the future. The students will learn so much by working together with other musicians to create something that’s never been done before at Greenville High School. I’m excited to see how everything comes together.”

The Wavaires are currently hosting several opportunities to support their efforts to raise funds for the trip. They include a spaghetti dinner prior to their first performance of the new school year, Wavaires Camp Show on July 25; Marco’s Pizza Night on Tuesday, August 5 and Bob Evans Fundraiser on August 8, 9 and 10. Please visit the groups Facebook page at Greenville High School Vocal Music Boosters to learn more, or ask a Wavaire.
