Get ready to sing along to your favorite Disney earworms like Frozen’s “Let It Go,” The Little Mermaid’s “Under the Sea” and The Lion King’s “Circle of Life” with enchanting new musical arrangements by our 140-member chorus and a 25-piece orchestra. You’ll be transported to the magical worlds of Coco, Zootopia, and Wreck-It Ralph, and experience the wonder of Disney theme parks like never before, all accompanied by dazzling animation from Disney and Pixar films.
Artistic Director and Conductor, Shawn Cullen is just as excited as his five-year-old nephew who will be in the audience, “I can assure you that Disney Pride in Concert is a one-of-a-kind experience. Not only will you enjoy the timeless and universal music of Disney, but you’ll also hear personal stories from an array of chorus members, showcasing the individual meaning and connections drawn from this iconic music. It’s a celebration of inclusivity that combines the magic of Disney music with important messages of acceptance and representation.”
Cullen also says, “And for those of you wondering if it’s appropriate to dress up as your favorite Disney characters, let me tell you, it’s not just appropriate – it’s encouraged! Come as your favorite prince, princess, mermaid, or even as the mouse himself! We want to make this experience as magical as possible, and what better way to do that than by letting kids of all ages express themselves authentically as the iconic characters that continue to shape our imagination!”
