Editor’s Note: We welcome guest writer Cari Keebaugh back for another great story about what’s going on in the wide world of Disney!
On October 13 and 14, the hills of Northeastern Pennsylvania will be alive with the sound of music – Disney music, that is!
Disney fans won’t want to miss these performances of “Disney in Concert” by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic, complete with synchronized Disney animation and art projected behind the musicians. The performances will also feature four phenomenal guest soloists – Candice Nicole, Whitney Claire Kaufman, Andrew Johnson, and Aaron Phillips – whose experiences range from singing for Disney to performing at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.
The musical arrangements, provided by Disney Music Publishing, will dip into the famous Disney archives and span from classics to recent fan favorites, including selections from Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Mary Poppins, and Pirates of the Caribbean. There are even rumors of a sing-a-long to “It’s a Small World.”
But the audience participation doesn’t end there; for the October 14 matinee performance, audiences are invited to dress up as their favorite Disney character.
The Philharmonic’s conductor, Maestro Lawrence Loh, conducted several sold-out “Disney in Concert” performances last year with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. “This concert is a perfect way to experience the Disney magic that we all know and love,” the Maestro noted. “I know our Northeastern Pennsylvania audiences are going to love these concerts!”
The performances will take place as follows:
- Saturday, October 13, the F.M. Kirby Center at 7pm
- Sunday, October 14, the Scranton Cultural Center at 2pm
Tickets are $29-60 for adults and $15 for students.
