Sorry for posting the awful image above – but it was all I could find on a moments notice. I just found out about a one-time-only Disney musical event, this Saturday, at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
If you are in the Southern California area you might want to check out Disney Pipes and Pops – a full two hour concert performance featuring Disney music from the 1920s to the 2000s. Classic silent Mickey Mouse cartoons, Plane Crazy and Galloping Gaucho, will be screened accompanied by Rob Richards at the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ – and he’ll be joined by new gospel pianist Alex-Zsolt. Rob Richards tells us:
“We will be playing a tribute to Oliver Wallace, including screening a very rare TV clip of Ollie with Walt, recalling the olden days of the silent movie organist. It is incredible. We will follow the clip performing music written by Wallace.”
It’s this Saturday, January 15th, at 10am. And Disney has approved Cartoon Brew to give away a pair of tickets.
The first correct answer to this Disney question, wins the tix CONTEST NOW CLOSED:
Disney composer Oliver Wallace was a famous theatre organist and pioneered the use of the pipe organ to accompany silent films. Can you name the classic Disney animated film for which he was composer and won two Oscars?
