Join conductor and host, Ryan LaBoy, and his Concert Choir students at North Hennepin Community College for a special release episode of Keep Calm and Choir On, as they celebrate and critique Walt Disney Animation Studio’s The Princess and the Frog.
Set against a larger semester study of #BlackMusicMatters, students will share their perspective on the music that makes the movie, the significance of crowning Tiana “The First Black Disney Princess,” and the larger cultural implications of Disney’s continued challenge to depict race and representation on the silver screen. The episode will conclude with a recording of Concert Choir singing the film’s Oscar-nominated track, “Almost There.”
