The Disney Parks are known for their unique rides, delicious food, and the one-of-a-kind entertainment opportunities. With new and exciting offerings continuing to debut at the Parks, Guests are always eager to visit year after year.
Hong Kong Disneyland just presented its first-ever live orchestra performance! Titled “A Magical Nighttime Symphony,” the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra performed in front of the Castle of Magical Dreams, alongside the one and only Mickey Mouse as well as other beloved Disney friends!
Disney Parks Blog shared the news, along with some photos, saying:
Under Conductor Chiu Tsang Hei’s lead, Music Director Ceejay Javier joined in the fun as a guest pianist for the live musical performance with popular Disney and Christmas songs. “I always approach every opportunity to perform as a way to create magic, especially since I spend most of my time now either composing or producing music for the Park,” shared Ceejay. “Opportunities like playing piano for Kay Tse singing ‘Beauty and the Beast’ at the Disney+ Launch Special or playing Disney and Holiday tunes with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra at the castle stage have provided me with some truly unforgettable musical memories that I will treasure forever.”
Michael Moriarty, managing director of Hong Kong Disneyland also said:
“We are very excited working with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, the flagship orchestra of our city. It brings all the magical elements together here in Hong Kong Disneyland: the spectacular night view of the castle, high-quality orchestral live performances and beloved Disney songs and stories.”
We do want to note that Hong Kong Disneyland will shut down from Friday, January 7 through January 20 as COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the city, and as Hong Kong’s government tightened COVID-19 health and safety restrictions.
At this time, there is no reopening date set. Inside the Magic will update you as we get information.
