Music, more than any other art form, has the power to move us. It can make you march to the beat, or get up and dance. And this Thanksgiving weekend, it will make hearts flutter and lips smile, as the Oregon Symphony performs a variety of songs with Disney in Concert: Magical Music from the Movies (Nov. 24).
Performing beneath a projection of some of the studio’s best-loved animated classics in the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, the acclaimed orchestra will bring the music of Disney to life. From the undersea sounds of The Little Mermaid to the untamed melodies of The Lion King, the one-night concert will pair four distinct vocalists with toe-tapping numbers like “Kiss the Girl” and “Hakuna Matata,” creating an experience as memorable as the feature films themselves.
And ranging from old favorites like Mary Poppins’ “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” to modern hits like “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast, kids of all ages will hear their favorites. If you want to “feel the love tonight” and be “a part of their world,” you’d better act fast — tickets are already available through the symphony’s website.
