Philharmonia Fantastique: The Making of the Orchestra is a concerto for orchestra and animated film that flies through the instruments of the orchestra to explore the age-old connection of creativity and technology. Guided by a magical Sprite, we see violin strings vibrate, brass valves slice air, and drum heads resonate. The film, created by the team behind such Disney classics as The Lion King, Finding Nemo and Inside Out, takes students on a magical up-close journey showing how musical sounds are created.
