Disney tunes at Disney Hall

October 17, 2009 | 12:01 pm

Lion Disney music at Disney Hall? Some might say: What took so long?

Tuesday night, Walt Disney Concert Hall will host “The Disney Symphonic Legacy,” the first time a concert featuring a program of all-Disney music has been offered since the venue opened in 2003. It will mark the Disney Hall debut of longtime Hollywood Bowl Orchestra conductor John Mauceri.

The concert will draw from more than 70 years of orchestral music written for Disney-produced movies, from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937) to the more recent “Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy (2003, 2006, 2007).

Mauceri will conduct the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and the Cal State Fullerton University Singers.
