The #Epcot International Festival of the Arts kicked off on January 13, and #Broadway stars John Strickland and Ashley Brown took to the America Gardens stage for the first night of a concert series that runs throughout the event. The duo sang songs from Disney shows like “The Little Mermaid” and “Mary Poppins,” then capped things off with a duet of “Let It Go” in honor of the fact that “Frozen” is set to hit the live stage soon.

The Broadway concerts are just one small part of the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, which showcases art in all of its forms. Performance art also gets a nod on the Fountain View Stage in Future World, where a cappella singers American Music Machine alternate with live musicians throughout the day. When there’s no activity up on the stage, check in front for the three Living Statues that represent the spirit of Future World. They’re a great photo opportunity as they interact with guests in clever ways.

New acts for new Walt Disney World event
