As we get closer and closer to the debut of the new nighttime show Epcot Forever, the Disney Parks Blog continues to give us more of a peek behind the curtain on the coming show. Last week, we got a sneak peek at the show as a whole. Today, we get a look at the making of the music for the new show.
- The music for the new show was recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios, with vocals performed by a talented choir of singers from across Central Florida.
- Disney Parks Live Entertainment show director Alan Bruun said “Music is the soul of the show, because music has been the soul of Epcot ever since it began.”
- Epcot Forever will celebrate “the past, present and future of Epcot,” and utilize music from the park’s history.
- Ironically, Epcot Forever will only be a temporary feature as another new nighttime spectacular is in the works for 2020.
- HarmonioUS will “celebrate how Disney music inspires people around the world, and will feature massive floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, choreographed moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics and lasers.”
