Philharmonia Fantastique is a 25-minute concerto for orchestra & animated film that follows a magical Sprite on a musical journey through the instruments of the orchestra. By the film’s end, the families of the orchestra overcome their differences to demonstrate “unity from diversity” in a spectacular finale. Philharmonia Fantastique was written by Mason Bates, and co-created with multi Academy Award winning Gary Rydrstrom and Academy Award nominated animation director, Jim Capobianco.
