From Resident Conductor, Stephen Squires when asked what’s his favorite Disney film and what are his memories of the Walt Disney movies…
“My favorite Disney film is Mary Poppins. I distinctly remember my mother taking me to see it in the theaters when I was 9!Mary Poppins really made an impression on me – it was the first time I ever saw the mixture of live action with animation, and as a 9 year old I had an instant crust on Julie Andrews! All the rest of the Disney films tie for second. When my sons were a similar age, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin came out – I love all of that music! And of course, Walt Disney talking on T.V. at the beginning of every Sunday night’s Disney T.V. show.”
