LACO @ The Movies Celebrates Walt Disney Animation Studios
You can experience the joy of film with live orchestral music as LACO screens animated shorts from Walt Disney Animation Studios, some which have not been seen in over 50 years. Conducted by six-time Emmy® Award-winning conductor and composer Mark Watters, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra performs live music with cartoons from the Walt Disney vault and more.
