Searching for Disney

I am planning a concert to salute Disney.  I am aware of all the Disney medleys out there, but want to highlight some songs, by using more sophisticated, perhaps unusual arrangements of some of the great songs. Any suggestions/ideas will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much.

This is an absolutely incredible a cappella jazz arrangement of I Wanna Be Like You from The Jungle Book. It's challenging to learn, but a great crowd pleaser and gives the choir opportunites to scat sing, immitate instruments, and other things most of us don't usually get to do. Also, great for working on chord tuning and locking harmonies.
 
There's also a Variations on Zippidi Doo Dah from Song of the South out there somewhere.

You might check out Matthias E. Becker’s a cappella arrangement of “Everybody wants to be a Cat”; he provides the English but it’s fun starting it in the published German!   Pub. by Gustav Bosse, Kassel, Germany; 1997.

 Kirby Shaw here. I've arranged a number of Disney tunes over the last 35+ years. Go to Kirbyshaw.com and click on "View entire catalogue" and browse away...click on the title and hear the complete recording...Under The Sea, Candle On The Water, Rise Up, Somewhere Out There, Dig Down Deeper, Kiss the Girl, All the Cats Join In, Beauty and the Beast. All are published by Hal Leonard.
And a cautionary note..there are a lot of arrangers out there that sell their arrangements without getting approval from the copyright owners. Beware and take care.
