Pixar in concert

Last summer we were treated to Bugs Bunny in an outdoor concert and this year, the Cleveland Orchestra presented Disney Pixar - the music of its 13 feature films like Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc, Cars, Brave, and Up.
Sometimes, you get so caught up in the animation of these movies that the classical music is forgotten.  My music girl loved watching the orchestra perform and making the connection between the music and the movies she loves.  Without the dialogue, you pay more attention to the music as it tells the story.
Like last year, we got great seats in the pavilion.  Sitting on the lawn is crowded and sometimes WET....tonight it poured at the beginning of the concert.  I felt bad for the people on the lawn but we were nice and dry under the shelter with a perfect view of the musicians and the screen!

The pavilion is the way to go!
I love the idea of just listening to the music. I agree, the music does get forgotten too many times.
Love the shirt.
