I kind of see the reasons why it's not a great idea either. I think as long as it's at the end it's ok.
I hope they sing it while I'm in Epcot next month! Everyone in my party would love to hear it!

As a Brit visiting and hearing VoL for the first time last summer, I really enjoyed the choir and the traditional American songs that they so beautifully sung. I couldn't even watch much more than the first few bars of Let It go sung by them...no, just no. N. O!

And by the way.....it is never mentioned or suggested that Arendelle is in Norway, is it? Could be any Scandanavian country. Or a purely fictitious place. So the notion that all things "Frozen" should be based in Norway isn't entirely accurate.
I don't think they specifically say, although I think that some of the buildings in the movie are very similar to the Stave church in Norway. I definitely get the impression is that is some Scandanavian kingdom and since Norway is the only Scandanavian country in World Showcase, it all gets lumped together. I'm not a fan of VOL doing contemporary music, but I don't like the new CM outfits at the AA pavillion either.

Frozen is great, don't get me wrong. I'm feeling like Disney is going a bit wild with this one. Sing alongs, parades, fireworks, rumors of maelstrom turning into a frozen ride....ugh

I hope this is a thing that will pass.

Voices of Liberty are a gem in disney parks. I hear them every time I go (except this spring when it was a jazz group; pictures in my trip report). Them adding on Let it Go is a bit much. When you wish upon a star, yup. I'm in. Let's not make them a jukebox for the current disney hits.

Ugh… they sound great, but I agree it has no place here. I prefer to listen to all-Americana songs while in the AMERICAN Adventure.

Agree 100%. Another movie tie-in destroying a pavillion at EPCOT.

Yes. Destroying is a strong word. I'm just sick of movie overlays, etc. in a park that was all about science and culture. UGH! [end rant]

Well, here's another view. If you're going to be a Voices of Liberty "purist," why not be a Dapper Dans "purist" as well? As a barbershop quartet, it can be argued that they should stay true to the barbershop style. That includes not only the type of music, but also the composition, type of chords, etc. While "Let it Go" can be arranged in four-part harmony, it's not a "true" barbershop song.

But, the truth is that these groups perform in theme parks. They could limit themselves to patriotic, Americana, or traditional barbershop, but it wouldn't necessarily be practical. They have to stay relevant and appeal to the masses.

I do agree that the parks are on Frozen overload right now. But as long as people want it, that's what they're going to get.

Now, that there is funny! And spot on.

VOL can do the most beautiful rendition in the world, but its still not appropriate at that venue. Enough with the Frozen overload already. Talk about saturating the market....

I submitted a comment on the parks blog about an hour ago stating how, in my opinion, the song didn't really fit the rest of their repertoire and the venue, and it wasn't posted. But two comments stating how excited they were about it are there.

Just for the record:

While they do not say in the movie that Arendelle is in the Norway, it is based on that.

Arendelle which means something like *Village below the mountains* is a combination of the cultures and customs of Arendal and Bergan, both city ports in Norway.


I also feel the VOL should stay with American patriotic songs.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

If I had a dollar for every negative post that wasn't posted on that blog then I could easily afford a one day park admission. If you don't kiss their *** then it doesn't get posted.

Maybe it takes place in Arendelle, Minnesota

I dunno, it's not that big of a deal to me. It's just a little something unexpected and fun and sure to put a smile on the face of those listening. I mean, after a while, any musical group is going to tire of singing the same songs over and over again. Let them have a little fun with it.

Was there the same mania with Lion King et al? People going around singing Just Can't Wait To Be King/Circle Of Life/Hakuna Matata constantly and Lion King everywhere in the parks??
