Congratulations to Tyler Lindsay, music composition/jazz major, on his selection to the cast of The Disney Collegiate Musician Program for 2015 at the Disneyland® Resort in California. Tyler was selected as a tribute to his hard work, dedication and talent.
Lindsay will become a member of the *Disneyland All American College Band* *presented by* *Yamaha*. This high-energy, twenty-one piece ensemble has been a highlight of summer entertainment at The Disneyland® Resort for 45 years.
Five days each week, he and his fellow band members will entertain Park Guests in shows featuring challenging musical arrangements and spirited choreography. Jazz forms the foundation, but the band’s repertoire spreads to more traditional music styles too. This band plays it all, from big band classics to contemporary hits and special arrangements of Disney standards.
Lindsay will participate in daily clinics and workshops featuring top name entertainment professionals. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from some of the world's greatest musicians. Previous guest artists have included Jiggs Whigham, Wayne Bergeron and Gregg Field, just to name a few. Each week the band will be featured in concert with one of our special guest artists. Lindsay will also have the opportunity to work on a project that will reflect one or more of these tracks: Composition and Arranging; Careers in Music; Recording and Production.
