WDFM - December Schedule

The Walt Disney Family Museum has released its December calendar, and just as the winter holidays bring with them warm feelings, treasured moments, and wondrous gifts, so too does this schedule. Between the musical magic of string quartets and candlelight carols, the images and stories of Walt Disney and family at Christmas, and the continuing conversations with Disney Legends, it is hard to decide which event isn’t perfect for the Disney enthusiast in your life.



December 12th - String Circle Quartet
4:00pm, Special Exhibition Hall, 122 Riley Avenue

tickets available online at www.waltdisney.org

Concerts in our Special Exhibition Hall continue to shine light on composers of Fantasia with Schubert’s String Quartet in G. Henry Purcell’s delightful Suite from The Faery Queen—a bit of musical fantasy—is also performed. Joseph Edelberg, Anthony Martin, and Kati Kyme, violins, and Thalia Moore, cello.

December 19th and 20th - Artists’ Vocal Ensemble Concert: A Candlelight Christmas
