Chris Mohr chats with members of the Pacifica Quartet, pianist Anton Nel and Disney conductor Richard Kaufman. On July 30, the Festival Orchestra joins the Disney crew for a live orchestral concert alongside clips of some of the most popular animated films of the past decade.

Summer classical music host Chris Mohr is coming back to Aspen. He has loved classical music since he was twelve. “And I owe it all to radio,” Chris explains. “I grew up in a farm town east of Cleveland. Most of the music I heard growing up was Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, and other favorites of my parents.
