Laredo Phil Bows ‘Magic of
Disney’ this Weekend at LEA

The Laredo Energy Arena will come to life this weekend with the “Magical Music of Disney” performed by the Laredo Phil.

Ticket prices start at $15 and doors open Saturday at 6:30 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. concert.

“This will be unlike anything experienced in Laredo before,” said Laredo Phil Music Director Brendan Townsend.

Ten of Disney’s most popular films are featured in the concert with visual enhancement. Behind the Phil will be a giant screen displaying clips, photos and movie segments from the various films, Townsend said.

"Designed to appeal to audiences of all ages, the music of such movies as “Mary Poppins,” “Mulan,” “The Lion King,” and “Beauty & the Beast” and others will come to life," he explained.

Area high school bands will entertain the crowd as they enter the arena, Townsend said. Also inside, audience members will have an opportunity fto enter a drawing for a trip to Disney theme park, including a family four-pack trip to see these characters up close in person, he added.

Another unique feature will be an “Instrument Petting Zoo,” a chance for audience members  of all ages to get to know various instruments they may have always been curious about.

“Disney excites and stimulates the imagination in so many ways, and we are delighted to partner with the Laredo Phil to bring the music to Laredo,” added Anissa Trevino, LEA Director of Marketing.

Tickets can be purchased through the Laredo Energy Arena or at www.ticketmaster.com, and are $15, $25, $35. VIP packages are available for $125.
