The Magic of Disney: An Immersive Choral Experience for students

Get ready to be transported to a world of wonder and imagination as we celebrate the enchanting music and stories that have captured our hearts for generations.

Join us this spring for “Magic of Disney” – an immersive choral experience for select students, with The Upper Canada Chorus, Elena Juatco and Matthew Joseph. Vancouver born Film, TV and Broadway star Elena Juatco (‘Ruth’ in Schitt’s Creek, ‘Dr Scarlet McWhinne’ in Open Heart, ‘Eponine’ in Les Miserables), is a lover of all things Disney. From Pocahontas to Jasmine and Mary Poppins, Elena will capture our hearts in ways only a true Disney princess can. A Stratford veteran, Matthew Joseph has performed leading roles across Canada, and is excited to help transport us to the magical worlds of Mary Poppins and the Lion King.
