A comedic musical troupe that performed classic Pixar tunes with whimsical arrangements featuring traditional instruments along with cowbells, kazoos, duck calls, sirens and side whistles, The Pixarmonic Orchestra premiered during Pixar Fest at Disney California Adventure in April 2018.
Originally performing at the Paradise Garden section of DCA, the troupe moved to the Pixar Bandstand at the Pixar Promenade on Pixar Pier, in the shadows of the Pixar Pal Around. That’s a lot of Pixar’s. The orchestra, presented by TripleDent Gum, (another Pixar reference, Inside Out) performed 6 times daily. According to a Disney spokesperson, “Seasonal changes in entertainment are part of the normal course of business…” and unfortunately, The Pixarmonic Orchestra conducted its final performance on September 15, 2019. Fortunately for me, the orchestra was a must see during my D23 Expo trip to California; and of course, I had my camera ready. Here is the full Pixarmonic Orchestra from the Summer of 2019.
