America Sings, Volume I: The Founding Years.
America Sings was an attraction at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, United States, from 1974 to 1988. It featured a cast of audio animatronics animals that entertained the audience by singing songs from various periods in America's musical history, often in a humorous fashion. America Sings opened on June 29, 1974, replacing the General Electric-sponsored Carousel of Progress attraction, which had moved to the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in 1973.
American singers hailing from different cultural heritages undoubtedly play a major role in the development of world music. The Americans’ love for music is well known and it comes as no surprise that the country has produced some of the finest singers over the past centuries. Flora Batson, nicknamed "The Double-Voiced Queen of Song" because of her soprano-baritone range, was a 19th century black concert singer who overcame racism to become an internationally well-known star
It may also be important to note that, on average, the GSS perform four premieres at every program. The summer of 2006 marked the final season of AFAM - after 33 years. However GSS’s New York City Concert Series continues. They have also made a well received yuletide album entitled "Christmas Songs from around the World" whose arrangements have also been performed by other choruses, chorales, and choirs as well. The GSS have performed with numerous orchestras. For example, Gregg Smith and Robert Shaw are the only choral conductors to receive the Alice M. Ditson Conductor's Award. In 1988, the Singers were presented with the Berliavsky Award from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters for the group’s tremendous support of American music.
