During #D23EXPO we were part of something magical. We were treated to a special concert hosted by Leonard Maltin, it was the world premiere of Disney in Concert: A Silly Symphony Celebration—a live concert performance featuring a 32-piece orchestra celebrating the Silly Symphony animated short films and their accompanying music from our childhood. During the concert, the music was performed live in synchronization with the picture, presented using high-quality, newly restored digital film masters. It truly was watching magic happen. I mean bird calls, door slams, beautiful music. It was all did just as they did it back in the day at the Studio.
