Celebrating Independence Day with Voices of Liberty at Disneyland Park

posted on July 4th, 2012 by Shawn Slater, Communications Manager, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment


Nothing stirs my patriotic spirit – on July 4th or any day of the year – quite like listening to the incomparable Voices of Liberty, the a cappella group that has become a cherished tradition at Walt Disney World Resort. Recently, a new Voices of Liberty ensemble made its debut at the Disneyland Resort, and they are just as impressive.

You might be interested to know some Voices of Liberty alumni from Epcot were involved in the formation of the new group. Show Director Dimitri Toscas and Music Director Tony DeRosa both sang with Voices of Liberty in the late ‘90s, and Tony has served as musical director for the group at Epcot since 2006.

“The advantage of Tony coming to Disneyland is he keeps the continuity of the style and the sound and the tradition,” said Dimitri, who wrote some of the unique scripted sections for the Disneyland park version of the show.

“It’s been such a staple of Walt Disney World entertainment for 30 years now,” said Tony. “What a great opportunity for that landmark entertainment from Epcot to come home to the original and become part of the fabric of Disneyland.”

Have a listen, and I think you’ll agree!

When visiting Disneyland park this summer, you won’t want to miss this celebration of the music that inspired our nation. Voices of Liberty is scheduled to appear at the Main Street Opera House prior to select performances of “The Disneyland Story Presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln,” each Friday through Tuesday, through September 16.

We just saw the Voices of Liberty 3 times during our latest trip to Disneyland. Please keep them permanently. Not only are they incredibly talented, they are bringing more and more people to see Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, which more guests should see.

Megan, they perform every day except Wednesday and Thursday, so check the show schedule when you go. Performance times are also posted outside the theater on Main Street.
