Be a part of the Magic of Disney's Candlelight Processional

Disney Candlelight Processional

Your choir will never forget this magical program that takes place at Epcot© during the holiday season. A Disney Candlelight Processional performance retells the Christmas story with the Voices of Liberty. Disney cast members “audition” to be part of the Christmas Tree with high school, college and adult choirs from around the country, all accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and a special guest celebrity narrator. Recent narrators have included Laurie Hernandez, Matt Bomer, Ana Gasteyer, Whoopi Goldberg, Pat Sajak, Jodi Benson, Kurt Russell, Warwick Davis, Trace Adkins, Neil Patrick Harris, CCH Pounder, Jaci Velazquez and Chandra Wilson. These breathtaking choir performance opportunities are the centerpiece of Walt Disney World during the holiday season and tell the story of the birth of Jesus in both music and scripture. The Candlelight Processional is presented at the amphitheater on World Showcase Lagoon, where guests enjoy the great outdoors filled with beautiful songs and storytelling.

A Little History on Disney's Candlelight Processional

The first Candlelight Processional with Massed Choir was held in Disneyland on December 20, 1958. It was named for an earlier Disneyland production, featuring the choir marching through the park to the stage, holding candles and singing Christmas melodies. In the Walt Disney World version, the chorus enters through the American Pavilion to the stage carrying candles. In 1994, when the show was shifted to Epcot, it was turned into an event like no other. Is your choir ready for the gift and the challenge? The Candlelight Processional begins the day after Thanksgiving and runs through December 30. There are three shows each day. This performance opportunity can be a part of your next trip with Music Travel Consultants.
