Yamaha Corporation of America and Disneyland Resort recently announced a renewed agreement for Yamaha to remain the official provider of musical instruments to the Disneyland Resort, solidifying a relationship that has spanned more than two decades.
“Disneyland Resort and Yamaha have a great relationship, as both companies share the love of music making, so we’re pleased that it will continue to grow thanks to this renewed agreement,” said Tom Sumner, senior vice president, Yamaha Corporation of America. “In addition to being the official supplier of musical instruments for Disneyland Resort, Yamaha sponsors the All-American College Band and works with the Disney Performing Arts program, something we’re very proud of as part of our broader commitment to music education. It’s exciting that Disneyland Resort visitors will continue to have plenty of opportunities to experience and interact with Yamaha instruments and products.”
“Music has been an integral part of the Disneyland Resort experience for 60 years,” said Bruce Healey, principal music producer for the Disneyland Resort. “We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Yamaha Corporation of America to help provide one-of-a-kind music education programs and experiences for our guests.”
Since 2005, when Yamaha first became the official supplier of musical instruments for Disneyland Resort, Yamaha Disklaviers, grand pianos, upright pianos, drum kits and sound reproduction and recording equipment can be found throughout the “Happiest Place on Earth,” including the Grand Californian Hotel and the Grand Ballroom of the Disneyland Hotel.
A team of Yamaha managers and staff representatives work to satisfy the diverse needs of the Disneyland Resort, which offers daily concerts at the theme parks as well as countless musical events that are integral to the Disneyland Resort experience.
In addition to providing instruments and sound recording products, Yamaha sponsors the internationally acclaimed Disney Performing Arts program, a unique educational program which enables youth ensembles, dance troupes, bands, choirs, vocal groups and other performing arts organizations to entertain visitors at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, as well as take part in workshops and other music programs.
During the summer, Yamaha presents the All-American College Band, comprised of students selected during highly competitive auditions held throughout the country. The program offers 21 promising young instrumentalists the opportunity to work as musical performers for nine weeks at the world-famous resort.
