Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda Join Forces For Evening Of Music and Storytelling
What an awesome year it’s been for beloved Disney composer Alan Menken who just won an Daytime Emmy for Best Original Song. He is the 16th person to receive the distinction of earning four prestigious awards—an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. To celebrate The Walt Disney Museum is hosting a virtual event “An Evening With Alan Menken. Being dubbed as a musical storytelling experience its the perfect opportunity to hear wonderful Disney anecdotes and lots of fantastic tunes.
There are two components to this awesome evening, the first is a VIP ticketed event Up Close and Personal with Alan Menken where he’ll be joined by long-time friend and collaborator Chris Montan from Disney music as the “reminisce about Alan’s inspiring career.” After that, there will be a FREE performance of Menken’s legendary Disney songs including including “Under the Sea,” “A Whole New World,” and “Be Our Guest,” as well as classics from other films and Broadway plays.
The virtual event will benefit The Walt Disney Family Museum’s At-Promise Youth Animation Academy Initiative. This is an educational program that provides state-of-the art animation and training for young people experiencing economic and social displacement.
As you can see from the information provided above, the event will take place on August 6th at 5pm PT. Registering for the performance is FREE and is still open (I just registered.) There are also sponsorship packages available. For a pledge of $1000 guests can enjoy Alan’s special VIP Chat, an artwork print, themed recipes and even mention on waltdisney.org.
For those that would like to attend the virtual VIP chat, a single ticket is $200.00
