Alan Menken. Even a casual Disney fan probably knows the name. Alan is instrumental in the sounds of so many of the modern era classics, that imagining these films and Broadway productions without his touch is just unimaginable. So when the opportunity to see a concert by Mr. Menken was offered by Disney D23, I knew it was not to be missed.
Back at Disney, you've heard his work in "Captain America: The First Avenger" and of course,"Galavant", plus so much more. I can't wait to hear what's next.
Learning the back stories and histories of beloved Disney memoires just makes the experiences all the richer. Thank you D23 for bringing the fans behind the magic.
