The Lamplighters will also offer the concert at an assembly at Waynesburg Central Elementary School on the morning of Oct. 13.

The choir will lead the audience in singing along to songs from Toy Story, The Lion King, Frozen and more. Disney characters from the movies represented may even make an appearance at the concert. Melanie Catana, director of choral music, said the concert is perfect for young children and hopes the music brings messages of joy and friendship to those who take part.

According to Catana, University students in the Lamplighters choir have been requesting to perform a Disney concert for years.

“We are already having a ball in rehearsal just preparing for this concert,” said Catana. “It is just a good time – singing purely for the love of it.”

Catana invites University students, in addition to children and parents in the community, to attend the concert and take part in the fun.

“The choir and the audience are both the performers for this event – we need all Disney lovers and singers on deck,” she said.

Tickets will be provided at the door prior to the event. For more information, contact Catana at 724-852-7639 or mcatana@waynesburg.edu.
