Magic, Fantasy, Adventure

Walt Disney Concert Hall

111 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012

2:00pm

Some things are pure magic. Like the magic Maestro Victor Vener and his California Philharmonic create when they make music. And Magic, Fantasy & Adenture, their third concert of the 2014 season is bursting with magical music. From the fantastical to the funny, the program ranges through music from The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, plus highlights from Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite and a scintillating performance of Dukas’ beloved The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. With the Cal Phil Chorale illuminating favorite songs from some of the screen’s most captivating tales, it’s a musical experience beyond compare. And if that wasn’t enough to make it an afternoon you simply won’t want to miss, organist Philip Smith joins Cal Phil for a bewitching performance of Bach’s stormy Toccata & Fugue.
