The Magic Returns with wcfsymphony's "Fantasia" Encore

Oct 27, 2015

In their “Fantasia” encore concert, the wcfsymphony creates a unique and exciting experience by combining classic works from both of Disney’s Fantasia movies and playing along to the animated scenes. They perform favorites from the movies, like Dukas’s The Sorceror’s Apprentice and Stravinsky’s Firebird, as well as less familiar scenes, including a deleted scene featuring Debussy’s Claire de Lune. Tune in to Iowa Public Radio Classical on Monday, November 2 at 7:00 p.m. to listen to the magic.

The wcfsymphony rehearses "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" by Dukas along with the scene from Disney's "Fantasia."
