The Golden State Pops Orchestra (GSPO) announces an expansion into the Beach Cities with the addition of a Saturday, April 14th presentation of Disney in Concert: Tale as Old as Time at the recently renovated El Segundo Performing Arts Center. As the ten-year-old non-profit orchestra sought new spaces to produce their unique brand of entertainment, the city of El Segundo emerged as a perfect match with GSPO’s family-friendly approach to accessible orchestra music. “We have been planning to expand our audience area to more of the South Bay and West L.A.”, says GSPO Executive Director Linda Grimes, “El Segundo is a very walkable city with charming shops and restaurants to compliment an exciting evening of affordable entertainment.”
GSPO is thrilled to reprise the very popular Disney in Concert: Tale as Old as Time. A concert of friendship and romance as seen through the eyes of Disney, Tale as Old as Time is a story of hopes and dreams, meeting new friends, finding true love and living happily ever after. All of the 2011 cast will be returning, including narrator Chase Masterson (Star Trek: Deep Space 9) and solo vocalists Araceli Applegate, Natalie Taylor, Drew Tablak and Stephen Van Dorn.
The concert will feature video portions of favorite Disney films, such as Aladdin, Snow White, The Lion King, Winnie The Pooh, Beauty and The Beast, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid and Pinocchio, sure to rekindle your fondest Disney memories. Song selections include A Whole New World, A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes, Bella Notte, Part of your World and Beauty and the Beast. Disney villains have their moment of glory, peaking with the dramatic Battle with the Forces of Evil from Sleeping Beauty, adapted by Disney composers from the Tchaikovsky ballet. The show will also include music by Michael Giacchino from the animated film UP, as well as a suite of music by Hans Zimmer from the successful Pirates of the Caribbean films. The Disney Concert Library has been licensing music directly to orchestra organizations worldwide since 1992.
