On Sunday, August 26 at 4:00 pm, the Occasion Singers will perform a special family concert featuring songs from all of the Disney classics. The vocal ensemble has put together an all-Disney Revue which will include selections from America’s favorite Disney movies: The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Mary Poppins, Snow White and more.
As always, this group will showcase their talent with intricate harmonies and elegant arrangements. Children and the young at heart will be invited to sing along and dance when the music moves them. This concert is designed for fun and would be the perfect family outing to end the summer before school starts. Beverages and popcorn will be available with a donation.
The ensemble is directed by Cassandra Morgan with singers Christopher Saulnier, Rui Moniz, Eric Bosworth, Melanie Hannack, Denise Bastos and Caroline Blais.
