We need your help! DisneyExaminer’s planning to put on the first ever Frozen Anniversary Ball, where we’ll celebrate Frozen’s first year and help raise money for the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. This special event will bring together all the things we love about Frozen, but we can’t do it without you! We need your support in order to make this dream come true. 
With your help, we’ll be able to put on this once in a lifetime celebration complete with:
A coronation ball with food (chocolates and sandwiches!), costume contests, and dancing
Shopping at Wandering Oaken’s Trading post (and maybe sauna?)
Kids activities including icy arts & crafts and “reindeer games”
and more!
If you do choose to support this ball (thanks in advance!) you’ll get special perks like email updates and access to ticket pre-sales as well as limited edition t-shirts, posters, and ornaments. It’s our little way of saying thanks for your help! 
Your money’s also going to a good cause - a big chunk of the ticket sales to the ball will be donated to CHOC (the Children’s Hospital of Orange County). Be a part of making these kids’ dreams come true too!
We’re planning to hold the ball in November in Southern California and you’re all invited! Until then, please check out our Indiegogo campaign to help support this royal extravaganza. Let’s build this snowman together!

Q: Why Is The “Fantasmic!” Theme Song So Catchy?

A: From its composer Bruce Healey:

I like “Classical” forms - those forms that contain a logical evolution and repetition of a theme. I also like the concept of the “leitmotif” which identifies a particular musical theme with a specific character in a story. I employed both concepts in that score, and it is memorable, I believe, because of that. 

I also am not ashamed to call myself a melody writer, and an arranger of themes. Some composers look down on the use of a highly memorable melody and prefer to create more abstract music.

There’s a place for both in the multimedia world. Fantasmic! as a multi-media show, was my opportunity to use many of the film scoring, compositional, arranging and orchestration techniques that I studied since before college, all in one project.

Check for our new, exclusive story tomorrow on DisneyExaminer to learn more about Bruce.
