CABARET & CONCERT Upcoming Events Around Town

Valley Performing Arts Center will present Disney FANTASIA – Live in Concert on Sunday March 29 at 1:00 pm so families can easily attend. With this presentation, Disney shares one of its crown jewels of feature animation with the CSUN Symphony Orchestra, conducted by John Roscigno, accompanying scenes from Walt Disney’s original FANTASIA (1940) and Disney FANTASIA 2000. The show highlights a selection of the magnificent repertoire from both films including TchaikovskyThe Nutcracker Suite and other iconic moments of Disney’s stunning footage, such as Mickey Mouse as he dabbles in magic to Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and the mythical unicorns and winged horses that accompany Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony, all performed live while the animation classics scroll in high definition on the big screen.
