HIGH POINT, North Carolina, March 17, 2022 – High Point University invites the community to a magical night of music for the whole family at Disney in Concert: A Dream is a Wish. The concert will take place on April 23 at 3 p.m. in the Nido and Mariana Qubein Arena and Conference Center. Tickets are free and open to the public. More information on ticket reservations can be found at www.highpoint.edu/live.
The live concert features the HPU Community Orchestra with four Broadway-caliber singers, under the direction of Dr. Brian Meixner, Associate Professor of Music. Audiences of all ages will enjoy a variety of music videos and movies from Disney classics, including ‘The Lion King’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Frozen’.
“We are High Point University with an apostrophe s,” says HPU President Dr. Nido Qubein. “The Qubein Arena is a space where our students can learn and grow, but also a place where the community can enjoy major events, concerts and entertainment as we will see with Disney in Concert. We look forward to bringing the whole community together. »
The new facility is as much for the community as it is for the students. HPU has held concerts in the Qubein Arena for packed crowds since its grand opening in September 2021. HPU hosted Grammy-winning band Train during the arena’s grand opening and welcomed the community to Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles, in February. Many basketball games and other free community events have also been held here.
The magic of Disney will come to life through upbeat music from the HPU ensemble and storytelling through songs that remind audiences that dreams come true.
