RICHARD SHERMAN & ALAN MENKEN PERFORMING THE DISNEY SONGBOOK AT THE D23 EXPO
The planets must have aligned and God has heard our prayers, because an amazing event is about to happen. These two men are responsible for transcendental treasures in the Disney songbook. I mean, it’s impossible to walk through the parks and not hear music from one of these two music legends.
Being a one-night event, Richard M. Sherman and Alan Menken will take the stage together to play some of their most beloved compositions at the D23 Expo, on August 10, as part of the Ultimate Disney Fan Event at the Anaheim Convention Center.
This is once in a lifetime event; I would give anything to go, Alan Menken is one of my Disney idols! For those not sure who these men are, I will fill you in. Alan Menken is known as the Disney Renaissance musical composer by excellence, having wrote the music for The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notredame, Hercules, Enchanted and Tangled. Richard M. Sherman is one of the Sherman Brothers. The Sherman Brothers composed the music and lyrics for Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, Winnie the Pooh and the iconic disney song "It’s a Small World" for the park ride.
