El Capitan Theatre to Host Music of Disney Wurlitzer Concert

The El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles has announced a special performance for fans of Disney music. “To Disney With Love” will be a unique performance by Rob Richards, the El Capitan house organist. This new D23 produced show will be a one night only engagement using the theaters renowned Mighty Wurlitzer Organ. The concert is a celebration of Disney music and Richards 20th anniversary as organist for the theater.

Richards has an extensive career spanning over 40 years. He was named “Organist of the Year” for 2005 and has toured the world. Throughout the show, Richards will chart his story from childhood to accomplished organist using music from Disney’s rich history. As an added treat, the evening will also feature the return of the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ classic “Get A Horse” to the big screen. This early Disney animated short will be accompanied by Richards on the Wurlitzer.

The El Capitan Theatre is one of Los Angeles’ oldest working venues. It underwent a massive renovation funded by the Walt Disney Company and Pacific Theaters in 1989. The two-year reconstruction recreated the original look and feel of the theater in the 1920s. Reopening its doors in 1991, the theater hosted the premiere of Walt Disney Pictures’ The Rocketeer. Since then it’s hosted the premieres of many Disney films.

“To Disney With Love” will take place on Monday, February 4 at 7:00 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the El Capitan Theatre website, box office, or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6. Special discounts are available for D23 members by calling 818-845-3110.
