WHAT:           
Nearly 75 years ago, Walt Disney used the skill of his world-class animators to visualize the world of classical music. The result: Walt Disney’s Fantasia. In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, John Mauceri returns to recreate this magic – an evening of selections from the classic film with clips on the Bowl’s big screen. Audiences will see your favorites, plus a glimpse into the brilliant artwork and unfinished segments of this Disney masterpiece. The evening ends with fireworks that complement the spectacular beauty of this cinematic triumph.
 
John Mauceri, the Founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, led over 300 concerts to a total audience of over 4 million people during his tenure. His distinguished and extraordinary career has taken him not only to the world’s greatest opera companies and symphony orchestras, but also the musical stages of Broadway and Hollywood, as well as the most prestigious halls of academia.  Among his many awards are a Tony, a Grammy, and two Emmys.  Mauceri has been the Chancellor of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts since 2006.
