Florida is a highly sought-after spring break destination. So, it wouldn't be surprising to learn that students from Crescenta Valley High School made the trek to the east coast shore. However, for 200 students from the CVHS music instrumental department, the trip was not to take in sun-filled days, but to participate in the annual Festival Disney in Orlando. The event, which ran from April 12 to April 14, is a competitive music festival in which instrumental and choral ensembles from numerous junior, middle and high schools from across the country compete and are judged by acclaimed music educators.

Violinists tuned their strings Friday night at Glendale High's auditorium, preparing to play the latest movement of a 30-year tradition of music. Just minutes before the show started, 12-year-old Jenna Schroeder tried to calm herself by playing a few bars in the opening piece, "Rigaudon," a work based on a lively French baroque dance. "I hope that I don't mess up an anything," she said. "I don't think I will, but sometimes nerves get the best of you." The 30th annual Elementary Honors Instrumental Music Festival gathered the best students, hand-picked from each of the school district's elementary schools.
