Review: The Magical Music of Walt Disney

I went to The Magical Music of Walt Disney concert at The Cambridge Corn Exchange this afternoon and had a wonderful time.

The Cambridge Philharmonic Society played a lovely selection of music from many of Disney’s films. The musical journey was narrated by actor David Timson and each peace of music as accompanied with images from the films and Disney animation archives projected on a big screen behind the orchestra.

Here is the play list.

Disney Classics Overture
Tarzan Suite
The Little Mermaid Orchestral Suite
Hercules Suite
Mary Poppins Fantasy
Beauty and the Beast

Rescuers Down Under
Disney’s Aladdin Orchestral Suite
Mulan Suite
Hunchback of Norte Dame Suite
The Lion King Suite

Finally there was an encore of a sing along to “It’s a Small World” with images from the ride and the words projected on the big screen.
