The concert, which is entitled Richard M. Sherman and Alan Menken: The Disney Songbook, will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center in the D23 Expo Arena.
Sherman and Menken have won a combined 10 Academy Awards for their work with Disney, and have composed music and songs for more than three-dozen Disney feature films, over two-dozen Disney Park attractions and half-a-dozen Disney musicals on Broadway.
"I can't express how excited I am that my esteemed friend Alan Menken and I will be sharing the same bill for the very first time," Sherman said in a statement. "Alan is an incredible talent, and I know we're both thrilled to be performing for Disney's most ardent fans—they're the best and I can't wait to be a part of what promises to be a very special night for all of us."
Admission to the concert will be on a first-come, first-served basis and is included in the price of a ticket to the D23 Expo. In addition to the 4,000-seat D23 Expo Arena, the concert will be simulcast into a 2,000-seat overflow theatre inside the Convention Center.
The D23 Expo—The Ultimate Disney Fan Event—brings the entire world of Disney under one roof, providing attendees with unprecedented access to Disney films, television and theme parks. It will be held Aug. 9-11 in Anaheim, CA.
