Hidden Gems – Magic Kingdom – Main Street Philharmonic

22 Nov

So as I was walking through Liberty Square, I heard music to my ears…literally coming from the Main Street Philharmonic.

While I knew that this very talented group of gentleman played on Main Street around the parades ( Sunday – Thursday at 1:35 pm & 3:555 pm), I had NO idea that they played just outside of The Hall of Presidents in Liberty Square!!!

The first set that I caught at 11:00 am featured several Christmas and Holiday songs. Now, these guys do WAYYY more than just play the songs!!! The Philharmonic led the crowd in a sing along, told some awesomely corny jokes, and did their best to get the crowd in the Christmas spirit!!!

During the second show at 12:20 pm, the Main Street Philharmonic featured more traditional American Marches. For me the highlights were when they played Stars and Stripes and led some of the kids in the audience in a little march with American flags and when they played “When the Saints Go Marching In”.

Here are a few pics of “Stars and Stripes”..

They gathered up the kids and gave them each a small American Flag.

The march to the...well March begins...

After everyone is ready, they take their place among the members of the Philharmonic!

Stars and Stripes Forever!!!

And here is a pretty poor video of them playing “When the Saints Go Marching In”!

I hope that you enjoyed this peek at the Main Street Philharmonic, and maybe even decide to take a detour through Liberty Square to catch them!!!
