“The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure” Exhibit and More Coming to the Downtown Disney DistrictPublished: May 9, 2022 / Last Updated: May 9, 2022 / By: Arvid Bux
“The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure,” a touring exhibit that illustrates the legacy and dynamic history of jazz, will be heading to the Downtown Disney District from June 1 to July 4.
In the “Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure,” Joe Gardner – musician, mentor, and star of Disney and Pixar’s original animated film, “Soul” – takes guests on a musical tour across America, showcasing the rich history of jazz along the way.
As a tribute to a musical art form that originated by African Americans, the exhibit illustrates the many different cultures and creators who influenced this evolving genre. Walt Disney Imagineering partnered with cultural institutions and subject matter experts to bring this story to life.
We are delighted to bring “The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure” out here to the west coast! Complimentary to all resort guests, the exhibit will be located in the building adjacent to Star Wars Trading Post.
And while you’re in the Downtown Disney District this June, you’ll be able to keep the summer vibes going with live nightly music that is sure to stir your soul, with genres including jazz, R&B, Funk, Motown, and Doo-Wop. There will also be a DJ performing at the Downtown Disney LIVE! stage on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, playing a variety of upbeat genres.
