“…the musicians were in dazzling form from the very first chord…another highly successful musical treat.” —Western Daily Press
“Fantasia…remind[s] us of the emotional storytelling power of classical music and the wide spectrum of beauty and characters that animation can provide…If you have kids that haven’t yet experienced the wonder of Fantasia and Fantasia 2000, I would highly recommend introducing them to it in this ideal setting, with the music heard as it was meant to be- live.” — Spinningplatters.com
