It is often said that music brings people together and Hong Kong Disneyland did just that in their collaboration with the largest inclusive orchestra in Hong Kong, True Colors Symphony (TCS), to develop a special rendition of “A Whole New World” from the Walt Disney Animation Studios film, “Aladdin.”

This unique version of the song, featuring traditional Chinese instruments and celebrating diverse voices and sounds, aims to celebrate the cultures and people that make up the world we all share. Fittingly, Hong Kong Disneyland’s Castle of Magical Dreams, which symbolizes a shining beacon of possibility and hope for all, served as the backdrop for the song’s music video.

TCS Colors Symphony’s mission is to cultivate the musical talent of people with disabilities, providing performers with various platforms to shine. The orchestra, made up of 22 diverse musicians of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, demonstrates how music is accessible to and for everyone.
