Rochester, Please Be Our Guest

This is the Academy’s second annual Disney showcase. “Our prior showcase was held at a restaurant, and we were looking for a way to make this year’s event bigger and better,” explains Academy owner Brannon Hungness. The decision to hold the showcase on the Harbor Town Belle was based on Disney history. “I was reminded of Steamboat Willie, the short film that made Mickey Mouse a star. And immediately, it all came together” says Hungness.

The event aims to celebrate Rochester by highlighting the city’s best local talent & natural beauty. “We chose Disney because it is a very universal theme,” says Hungness. Although there are students of all ages and backgrounds performing at the event, no one had trouble selecting a song from a favorite Disney property. But according to Hungness, more than anything, “the theme shows that Rochesterians love to have fun!”
