Disney in Concert: Tale as Old as Time
Magic is Coming to Ithaca! Hosted by conductor and pianist Josh Condon, "Disney in Concert: Tale as Old as Time" is concert production created by the Walt Disney Music Company © and it's coming to Ithaca, NY!
In Ford Hall at 8:00 PM on the evening of February 15th, 2014, Ithaca College students will come together to form a symphony orchestra and chorus to bring you an unforgettable concert.
Vocal soloists will present all your favorite songs from the Disney movies, many of which feature the orchestrations from the original Disney soundtracks. Visual images and video clips to go along with the live music take you through the vast history of the Disney franchise, making the concert truly a multisensory experience.
This will feature a 72-piece orchestra, 2 large choruses consisting of over 150 singers, and a lead cast ensemble of 19 brilliant vocal soloists.
We are honored to have the Walt Disney Company President and CEO, Bob Iger, making a special appearance in a video message specifically created just for this concert.
This concert is a ONE-TIME event so once tickets are gone, they are gone! Josh will be sharing the podium with Michael Samson, conductor of the Ithaca College Gamer Symphony Orchestra; Ben Van De Water, conductor of the a cappella men's group, Ithacappella; and Lorrene Adams, associate conductor of the Voices Multicultural Chorus.
Designed to inspire, this production will uplift you and allow your imagination to take hold. The music and performers will captivate and take you into the wonderful world of Disney. Finally, you'll remember the enchantment of true love, which is, in and of itself a tale as old as time.
