D23 Expo 2013: Richard Sherman and Alan Menken The Disney Songbook

Two of the biggest names in Disney music came together for a one of a kind concert at the D23 Expo! Richard Sherman and Alan Menken played a night concert of some of their all-time classics for a full arena and full overflow area.
Richard Sherman played some of the late Annette Funicello's best known songs that he and his brother Robert and wrote for her.
A view of the packed arena.
Jason Schwartzman and BJ Novak came out to sing with Richard Sherman. The two actors are playing The Sherman Brothers in the upcoming Saving Mr. Banks.
Alan Menken came on and essentially played his entire catalog of music from The Little Mermaid, Newsies, and more!

The two legends ended by performing together. As the performance by Dick Van Dyke and his acapella group at the last D23 Expo, this concert was the highlight of the Expo! Walt himself would have been proud!
