The Magic of Disney Love Songs Comes to the Morris Museum’s Bickford Theatre



Bring the family to the Morris Museum on Sunday, November 13 for an enchanting afternoon of Disney magic and love. Starring vocalist Alexis Cole and quartet, The Magic of Disney Love Songs, will be held at 2:00PM in the Bickford Theatre.

Disney movies created some of the all-time greatest love songs including “When You Wish Upon a Star” from “Pinocchio” and “So This is Love” from “Cinderella.” Today’s leading jazz/pop vocalist Alexis Cole sings all the Disney favorites with lush arrangements. The Wall Street Journal says “Alexis sings as sultry as the Disney songbook is ever going to get.” The concert will feature fan favorites such as “Once Upon A Dream” from “Sleeping Beauty” and “If I Never Knew You” from “Pocahontas.”
