Words of Walt- Music

As much as I love Disney and dream of one day working for the mouse, I am currently a music teacher.  I am passionate about music, and I enjoy this quote from Walt because it shows the role that music played in the early days of Disney films.

“Throughout our career in motion pictures, classical music has played a very important part.  Early in the beginning we created a cartoon series called Silly Symphonies… simple short subjects that relied heavily on the works of classical composers.  The popularity to the Silly Symphonies led us to undertake a major effort, Fantasia, which featured the music of Bach, Dukas, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Mussorgsky, Beethoven, and Schubert.”
