San Francisco's Walt Disney Family Museum will celebrate Alan Menken reaching EGOT status with a virtual fundraiser celebrating the legendary composer's career, and feature special guest, Lin-Manuel Miranda.
An Evening with Alan Menken is set for August 6. The virtual event will begin with a ticketed VIP chat between Menken and music producer Chris Montan at 8 PM ET, followed by a free performance by Menken and Miranda at 8:30 PM ET.
The performance will showcase Menken's most beloved Disney songs such as "Under the Sea," "A Whole New World," "Be Our Guest," and more. Menken and Miranda are currently working together to write new songs for the live-action film, The Little Mermaid.
Proceeds from the event will support The Walt Disney Family Museum's education programs, which offer instruction to aspiring animators. The event will also benefit the museum's work with Bay Area underserved youth, including the At-Promise Youth Animation Academy.
