Student musicians will perform at a “Disney and Dessert” concert at 2 p.m. on March 3 in the Mercer Island High School commons. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.

The fun family event is the only fundraiser for all seven of Mercer Island School District’s orchestras, grades 5-12.

It features delicious desserts, a raffle and, of course, an hour of the high school orchestra playing Disney music. Kids are invited to come in their favorite Disney costumes. New this year is a game called “Pop and Win” balloons, in which everyone is a winner.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door for adults, and $5 for students. The concert is free for children under age 5 and for one fifth-grade orchestra student (the youngest orchestra members) with a paying adult.

Team O is the booster club for MISD orchestra and is a 501(c)(3) organization that is a primary source of funding for instruments, music coaching, workshops and performance tours.
