An Evening with Alan Menken
Alan Menken is celebrated in an evening of music and storytelling. The award-winning Menken is the composer of countless songs, notably from Disney favorites such as Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Tangled, and many others.
Prior to the performance there is an optional ticketed VIP chat, "Up Close and Personal with Alan Menken. " Alan and his long-time friend and collaborator, former Disney music executive Chris Montan, reminisce about Alan's inspiring career.
Then, everyone can enjoy a free performance of Alan’s legendary Disney works, including “Under the Sea,” “A Whole New World,” and “Be Our Guest,” as well as classics from other films and Broadway plays. During the performance, Alan is joined by special guest and friend Lin-Manuel Miranda.
This virtual event benefits The Walt Disney Family Museum’s At-Promise Youth Animation Academy initiative—an educational program providing state-of-the-art animation training for young people experiencing economic and social displacement.
